The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) is excited to announce that the Common Ground Country Fair 
Poster Design Contest for the 2017 Fair is accepting submissions. The Common Ground Country Fair poster is the highly regarded image that promotes MOFGA's annual celebration of rural living.

The winning artist receives $2,500, a press release, and is highlighted in MOFGA's quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. The selected design is also featured on the Fair poster, website, T-shirt and in promotional literature. The theme of the design must align with MOFGA's mission and the general guidelines for participating in the Fair. We welcome all Maine residents and MOFGA members to enter submissions by August 5, 2016, only a few weeks away. The poster guidelines and application are available at www.mofga.org/TheFair/Poster. For more information please contact the Fair office at commonground@mofga.org.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Better chemicals mean better business
Sun Journal - 6/10/2012.
Op-ed by Adam Lee – Cars are safer and better now than at any other time in history. I am not just talking about anti-lock brakes or air bags; I am talking about the chemicals and substances that go in and come out of the cars.
Exeter farm uses poop to produce energy
Bangor Daily News - 6/8/2012.
By Alex Barber – Exeter: One rural Maine business has unveiled a way for it to not only make money, but also help protect the environment. Three state commissioners and several legislators toured Stonyvale Farm, a fifth-generation, family-owned dairy farm, to view its anaerobic digestion system, which turns animal and food wastes into energy.
This year, farm’s building projects include solar power, irrigation
Kennebec Journal - 6/8/2012.
Op-Ed by Denis Thoet – We are a relatively new farm, even by the standards of Maine, where new farms seem to crop up every day. Every year is a "building year" and this one is no different. Starting from scratch in 2004, our first year as a community-supported agriculture farm, we have bought hand tools, fencing and posts. We turned a former workshop into apprentice housing, built a 26-by-96-foot-high tunnel hoop house and sheep and cow sheds, built an 8-by-30-foot "sun space" off the west side of the house for spring seedlings, put in miles of drip irrigation, and built a 12-by-12-foot apartment off the apprentice house for year-round living.

Portland Press Herald - 6/8/2012.
By Kelley Bouchard – Monmouth: Maine strawberry growers are anticipating a good harvest in the coming weeks, despite several spring frosts as flower buds formed and recent heavy rain, according to the University of Maine Cooperative Extension at Highmoor Farm.
