2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Roundup warning letter came before USDA decision
SafeLawns.org - 2/23/2011.
By Paul Tukey – Just as Col. Don Huber’s letter that we revealed here seven days ago is becoming widely circulated on the Internet in various sites, a key piece of information has become available this evening. Huber, a former Emeritus Professor at Purdue University and coordinator at the American Phytopathological Society that studies plant diseases and pathogens, confirmed to me that he hand delivered his letter to the United States Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on Jan. 17. This is significant because the USDA announced that it will now allow genetically modified “Roundup Ready” alfalfa on Jan. 27.
LePage dismisses BPA dangers; ‘worst case is some women may have little beards’
Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2011.
By Kevin Miller – AUGUSTA, Maine — The political debate over bisphenol A is heating up in Maine after Gov. Paul LePage’s recent comments questioning whether the controversial chemical is as dangerous as many scientists claim. And LePage’s unusual quip about some women growing “little beards” from exposure to BPA likely will add another wrinkle to an issue on track to be one of the most contentious of the legislative session.
Oceans’ large predator fish are sinking fast
Portland Press Herald - 2/22/2011.
Washington Post – Over the past 100 years, some two-thirds of the large predator fish in the ocean have been caught and consumed by humans, and in the decades ahead, the rest are likely to perish, too. In their place, small fish such as sardines and anchovies are flourishing in the absence of the tuna, grouper and cod that traditionally feed on them, creating an ecological imbalance that experts say will forever change the oceans.
Eat less, government advises
Bangor Daily News - 2/21/2011.
Editorial – The U.S. government has been putting out dietary guidelines since 1980, telling us to eat less fatty and fried foods and more fruit, vegetables, beans, nuts and fish. But only this year did it start with warnings about obesity and advice to reduce total food intake.
