Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News

Bangor Daily News - 9/22/2009.
By Ardeana Hamlin – The “baa, baa black sheep, have you any wool?” question will be answered, as it is every September, at Common Ground Country Fair on Friday through Sunday, Sept. 25-27, at the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association fairgrounds in Unity. The fair is a celebration of all things organic, especially farming, and celebrates rural living.
