By Rachel Ohm - The keynote address at today's Common Ground Country Fair was about the role of women in agriculture, but it was dedicated to the family of a man remembered as a visionary in organic farming.
Pesticides' effect on generations of field-workers
San Francisco Chronicle - 9/21/2013.

Crowds find Common Ground at Maine fair
Portland Press Herald - 9/21/2013.
By Jessica Hall - Unity: Instead of the typical fair staples such as cotton candy and carnival rides, the Common Ground Country Fair draws crowds seeking veggie burgers and workshops on worm composting.

It's good for the immune system when battling infection in the body and it's good in digestion and in the preservation of food in the form of fermentation. That was part of the message at the Common Ground Country Fair on Friday from Sandor Katz, an author and fermentation expert who spoke on fermentation and food relocalization.
