MOFGA's Farm Training Project Workshops
Weekly, June through September
at farm locations throughout Maine
Free


Designed to augment the on-farm learning of the farm apprenticeship program, MOFGA's Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops follow an informal format, usually beginning with a farm tour followed by a presentation on the topic of the day. Participants are invited to stay for a potluck supper – bring a dish or something fresh from the farm to share (please bring your own place setting as well). All events are held rain or shine and are free and open to the public. For more information or directions to any of the workshops, call 568-6018, email education@mofga.org, or check the FTP website.

Foraging for Beach Greens with Andrew Taylor
Portland Press Herald - 5/30/2013.
By Sharon Kitchens - More and more people are becoming invested in finding ways to eat healthier, strengthen their local food systems, and in general are paying closer attention to where their food comes from.
