The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) is excited to announce that the Common Ground Country Fair 
Poster Design Contest for the 2017 Fair is accepting submissions. The Common Ground Country Fair poster is the highly regarded image that promotes MOFGA's annual celebration of rural living.

The winning artist receives $2,500, a press release, and is highlighted in MOFGA's quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. The selected design is also featured on the Fair poster, website, T-shirt and in promotional literature. The theme of the design must align with MOFGA's mission and the general guidelines for participating in the Fair. We welcome all Maine residents and MOFGA members to enter submissions by August 5, 2016, only a few weeks away. The poster guidelines and application are available at www.mofga.org/TheFair/Poster. For more information please contact the Fair office at commonground@mofga.org.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
An enterprise that sticks
Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/20/2011.
By J. Hemmerdinger – York: Jonathan King and Jim Stott never planned to make millions selling jam. When the partners launched Stonewall Kitchen in 1991, they just wanted to earn a few extra bucks to pay off student loans.
MOO Milk, an organic co-op in Maine, struggles for customers
The New York Times - 2/19/2011.
By Katie Zezima – Edmunds: Perched on the rocky coast of far eastern Maine, the farm owned by Aaron Bell and Carly DelSignore is stunning, both in its views of Cobscook Bay and in the distance that the milk they sell must travel to get on the shelves.
Quota reached, shrimp season to end early
Portland Press Herald - 2/19/2011.
By David Sharp – Portland: Regulators on Friday voted to shut down New England's shrimp season early for the second consecutive season because fishermen surpassed the target set by biologists.
Create a Frost Heave dessert
Kennebec Journal - 2/18/2011.
By Denis Thoet – News item in local weekly: "The first Augusta Whoopie Pie Challenge Festival will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Utilitarian (sic) Universalist Community Church at 69 Winthrop Street." I love those Utilitarians. They are always doing something useful, especially when it comes to whoopie pies. I think we should go a few steps farther. It's not enough that whoopie pies are in line to be crowned Maine's state dessert, or state snack, or something. It's time to replace "Dirigo" on the State Seal with something more appropriate, like "Whoopie!"
