Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organically Grown Cannabis in Maine Recognized by Certifying Body
New Cannabis Ventures - 9/28/2016.
While many cannabis growers use organic methods in their cultivation, it is not possible to claim that the product is itself organic, as the federal government, through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, oversees organic labeling and won’t do so for a product that is federally illegal. Thanks to the efforts of Dawson Julia, the owner of East Coast CBDs in Unity, Maine, growers in the state can be recognized for their methods and earn the “Certified Clean Cannabis” label from the Maine Organic Farmers and G[ardener]s Association (MOFGA), which has certified more than 500 organic farms and processors in the state representing over 6% of all farms. 5 growers have earned the certification initially.

By Emily Pinette - This weekend marked the 40th annual Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine, a must-see fall attraction for those in the 207 area. Every year the fair pulls out all the stops to provide a fun and educational experience for visitors and vendors alike.
