Seed Swap and Scion Exchange

Sunday, March 25
MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center, Unity

FREE, no registration required

For gardeners and orchardists, it's the most wonderful flea market in the world. Not only that – most of the best stuff is free!

MOFGA, the Maine Tree Crop Alliance, and Fedco will once again host the Seed Swap and Scionwood Exchange at MOFGA’s Common Ground Exhibition Hall in Unity.

Please bring any seeds, scionwood or cuttings you have to share freely with others. In recent years we have given away scionwood from well over 200 fruit varieties. These contributions make the day a success. If you don't have seeds or scionwood to share, don't fret and join us anyways – maybe bring some baked goods or fertile hatching eggs instead!

We’ll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock.

Admission is free. Information and schedule of activities

Farms’ use of antibiotics adds to ‘superbug’ risk
Portland Press Herald - 7/3/2012.
Op-ed by The Washington Post – The Food and Drug Administration announced in 1977 that it would begin prohibiting the use of some antibiotics in agriculture, but Congress objected and nothing happened. Since then, the need for restraint has grown. The wonder drugs of the 20th century have been so widely used that germs are becoming resistant to them, giving rise to "superbugs," bacteria that are immune to one or more antibiotics.
This US summer is ‘what global warming looks like’
Bangor Daily News - 7/3/2012.
By Seth Borenstein – Washington: If you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, scientists suggest taking a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks. Horrendous wildfires. Oppressive heat waves. Devastating droughts. Flooding from giant deluges. And a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.
