‘Weed Dating’ aims to sow seeds of rural romance at Common Ground Fair
Bangor Daily News - 9/18/2012.
By Abigail Curtis – Unity: Ah, farming. The romance of the fields; the beauty of the land. But sometimes it can be lonely at the (garden) plot. That’s why young orchardist Eliza Greenman of Mercer is organizing a special, free event at this weekend’s 36th annual Common Ground Country Fair: “Weed Dating.”
