Volunteers' Earth Day Cleanup Day at MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center
Saturday, April 19

The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) will host an Earth Day Cleanup Day with volunteers at MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center in Unity, Maine, on Saturday, April 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Celebrate Earth Day by helping us prepare our grounds for the upcoming growing season. Volunteers receive a hearty lunch and a free T-shirt.

Depending on the weather, volunteers may be cleaning, raking and mulching gardens, screening compost for use on the grounds, doing light carpentry, helping our Low-Impact Forestry Committee with its work in the woods ... or helping with other projects.

For more information or to RSVP for the workday, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Anna Libby, at alibby@mofga.org or 568-4142. MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center is located in Unity, Maine, on the Crosby Brook Road, off Routes 139/220.
