MOFGA's Farm Training Project Workshops
Weekly, June through September
at farm locations throughout Maine
Free


Designed to augment the on-farm learning of the farm apprenticeship program, MOFGA's Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops follow an informal format, usually beginning with a farm tour followed by a presentation on the topic of the day. Participants are invited to stay for a potluck supper – bring a dish or something fresh from the farm to share (please bring your own place setting as well). All events are held rain or shine and are free and open to the public. For more information or directions to any of the workshops, call 568-6018, email education@mofga.org, or check the FTP website.

How to bring healthier foods to corner stores
Common Dreams - 9/4/2009.
Institute for Agriculture & Trade Policy – Corner stores around the country have used a number of innovative strategies to bring healthier food to their shelves, finds a new paper by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. In many low-income neighborhoods without a grocery store, corner stores are one of the few food options for consumers. In Healthy Food for All: Healthy Corner Store Strategies from Across the United States, IATP explores how corner stores have expanded their selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, utilized social marketing strategies and transformed their in-store facilities to successfully sell healthier food.
Impact of lawn chemicals unnoticed by landowners
Portland Press Herald - 9/4/2009.
Letter to the editor by Matt Power – As I walk through my Portland neighborhood, I'm always stunned by how many people still use herbicides and pesticides to give their lawn the look of a golf course. I'm guessing most people simply aren't aware that they're spreading poison – not only on their own little parcel, but also directly into Back Cove every time it rains.
Mercury rising: Temperature will soar in some U.S. States within the century
Treehugger - 9/4/2009.
By Naturally Savvy – The heat is on. We all know climate change is a very real and very dangerous fact of life, and many people are changing their lives in an attempt to stop it. But just how hot could things get? The Nature Conservancy has developed a new online tool called the ClimateWizard, which maps past and projected climate data.
Maine Fare to serve up feast of food, thought
Bangor Daily News - 9/4/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Camden, Maine: Here’s a recipe for success. Take one successful celebration of Maine food and drink, add top local chefs and liberally dollop with discussions about sustainability. Garnish with delicious dinners, decadent desserts and locally produced wines and spirits – even a cocktail made with Moxie – and enjoy.
