2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The truth about the global demand for food
The Guardian [UK] - 8/2/2011.
By Jayati Ghosh – A new report from the FAO blows the myth that increased grain consumption from developing countries leads to higher global demand and higher prices. The growth rate of total cereal consumption was considerably slower in the period since 2000 than it was in the 1960s and 1970s, and only around the same as it was in the 1980s.
How to start a worker co-op
Energy Bulletin - 8/2/2011.
By Mira Luna – In the age of unemployment, downsizing, and outsourcing, where can a poor soul find a job? Well, maybe it’s time we create our own. Self-employment is an option and can seem freeing, but it’s hard to do everything yourself and find time for a non-work life. The worker coop is an alternative to the isolation of self-employment and the exploitation of traditional jobs.
Planting seeds in Maine for African heritage
Portland Press Herald - 8/2/2011.
By Meredith Goad – Falmouth: Boulis Kodi treads lightly through a thriving garden patch, showing off a summer's worth of hard work by Nuba Mountain refugees from Sudan. "This is the sweet corn, and this is the tomatoes over here," said Kodi, who is the farm manager for the Center for African Heritage garden project at Tidewater Farm, just down the road from the University of Maine Regional Learning Center.
Not your grandma’s strawberries
Grist - 8/2/2011.
By Natalie Jones – In 1950, your parents, grandparents, or a perhaps a younger version of you could eat a handful of string beans – about three-and-a-half ounces – and get about 9 percent of the calcium you needed for the day. Almost 50 years later, in 1999, the amount of calcium in string beans dropped by 43 percent, leaving you with only 5 percent of your daily calcium.
