Seed Swap & Scion Exchange
Sunday, March 29, 2015
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
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. We'll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock. Admission is free. More details.

Organic Consumers - 9/7/2009.

Mainers treasure blueberry recipes found in pamphlet
Bangor Daily News - 9/5/2009.
By Sandy Oliver – Barbara Barrett of Eastport wrote a couple weeks back, “I have lost a wonderful blueberry cake recipe that came from a pamphlet. …As it turned out, Barrett had lent the pamphlet to a neighbor who saw this column and remembered that she still had the brochure, which she gave back to Barrett right away. From all the information you sent, it appears that this recipe – and others – was published by the Maine Department of Agriculture in a pamphlet through a few editions.
