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.

Kohlrabi, the next big thing in the garden?
The Washington Post - 12/19/2012.
By Barbara Damrosch – A kohlrabi is a strange-looking object even when it’s not the size of a soccer ball – a green or purple globe that sits just at soil level, with leaf stems protruding upward at various longitudes and latitudes on its surface. The more typical varieties I’ve chosen to grow, such as Kolibri, are harvested at baseball size or smaller – crisp and tender enough to eat raw.
Whispering Pines: Common Ground
Bowdoin Daily Sun - 12/19/2012.
By John R. Cross - I hadn’t seen Russell Libby ’78 since his 30th Reunion, but during our brief encounter on that early June day on campus the years rolled away, a familiar twinkle was in his eye, and the conversation flowed without apparent effort. Ours was one of those college friendships based on mutual respect, trust, and shared experiences; it was always going to be there, even without regular contact in person, by mail, e-mail, or social media.
Pinpoint climate studies flag trouble for Mexico, Central American farmers
Reuters - 12/19/2012.
By David Alire Garcia – A growing body of scientific evidence ranks Mexico and its southern neighbors near the top of the list of countries most vulnerable to global warming, and advances in micro-forecasting foresee a grim future in alarming detail.
Dude, what's this stuff doing in my Gatorade? Teen takes on brominated beverages
Environmental Health News - 12/19/2012.
By Brett Israel – Sarah Kavanagh’s online petition to remove potentially toxic chemical brominated vegetable oil (BVO) from popular sodas and sports has gotten nearly 200,000 signatures since November. Overexposure to bromine may be related to skin lesions, memory loss, nerve disorders, reproductive and behavioral problems.
