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 available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
What we know – and don’t know-about eating GMO’s
Grist - 5/16/2011.
By Tom Philpott – Are genetically modified foods safe to eat? The conventional answer is "yes," and it's not hard to see why. Since their introduction in 1996, genetically modified (GM) or genetically engineered (GE) corn and soy seeds quickly conquered U.S. farm fields. Today, upwards of 70 percent of corn and 90 percent of soy are genetically modified, and these two crops form the basis of the conventional U.S. diet.
Compost key in creating the green, green grass of home
Maine Sunday Telegram - 5/15/2011.
By Tom Atwell – Lawns are a personal thing. Some people want their lawns to look like the perfect expanse of green at a golf course. Others are happy with anything that is green. And a few prefer no lawn at all. But barring a major renovation project, all homeowners must live with the lawn they have.
Food safety for whom? Corporate wealth vs. people’s health
Grain - 5/15/2011.
The steady stream of scandals, outbreaks of disease and regulatory crack-downs that is part and parcel of the industrial food system has made food safety a major global issue. Our growing reliance on corporate food and farming concentrates and amplifies risk in new and unprecedented ways, at scales never seen before, making intervention more necessary than ever to ensure that food does not make people sick. But behind all of the talk and action lies another agenda.
CDC confirms lemon eucalyptus oil as effective as DEET
Treehugger - 5/15/2011.
By Sara Novak – It's easy to say you'll never use DEET, that is until you come down to South Carolina. My home state boasts mosquitoes that rival your house pet in size and stature. But even still, many fear the toxicity of DEET and try to avoid it even with those mini-monsters landing on you noon and night. According to the CDC, lemon eucalyptus oil could be a much safer and more natural weapon.
