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
Potato tips
Village Soup - 4/13/2009.
by Jean English. I picked up my organic seed potatoes at the Belfast Co-op Store recently and started greensprouting them shortly after that. Greensprouting? That means getting potatoes to break dormancy and sprout before you set them in the garden.
Touting factory pig farming safe, really?
Treehugger - 4/13/2009.
By Sara Novak – In an age where nearly 70 percent of antibiotics produced annually are given to some form of livestock and mass production of livestock has led to widespread animal mistreatment and serious environmental repercussions, it seems flippant to claim that factory farming is done for the safety of consumers.
Youngsters discovering fresh fruit, vegetables
Kennebec Journal - 4/13/2009.
By Matthew Stone – Leftover strawberries and beets drew the attention of Sarah Caban's fourth-graders at Mount Vernon Elementary School as they returned to class from a recent recess. The fruit and vegetables, left over from a morning snack, sparked a conversation about at-home eating habits. "We get blood oranges almost every week now," 11-year-old Faith Jacques said of her family's grocery shopping habits.
Cage-free egg farm makes for happy birds
Kennebec Journal - 4/12/2009.
By Scott Taylor – The hens were shy when Radlo began the small tour of the joint Radlo Foods-Dorothy Eggs cage-free egg facility Thursday morning, leaving a wide circle around Radlo, Production Vice President Tom Shea and Bill Bell of the New England Brown Egg Council. But the birds wandered closer the longer the men were there. Finally, one brave hen wandered up to Radlo, like she had something to say. He scooped her up like a cat and petted her while he continued talking.
