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.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Wild mushroom program designed to protect the public
Kennebec Journal - 5/14/2011.
By Greg A. Marley – With growing dismay, I read George Smith's column, "Maine has a mushrooming problem at the State House," on May 11. The column reflected his uninformed rebuff of the efforts of the Wild Mushroom Harvesting Task Force and L.D. 1407, An Act To Establish the Maine Wild Mushroom Harvesting Certification Program.
Organic mulches sustain healthy garden soil
Bangor Daily News - 5/14/2011.
By Reeser Manley – We planted peas and onions in Marjorie’s Garden last weekend while two crows watched from a nearby birch. I could feel the sun’s warmth on my back and the soil’s warmth in my fingers as I dug two inch-deep furrows down the length of a garden bed. Into each furrow I scattered pea seeds, plump with water just imbibed, then covered them with the warm soil, gently patting it down with the flat of my hand. All the while, the two crows were watching.
‘Kids Safe’ bill finds bipartisan solution
Portland Press Herald - 5/12/2011.
By Rebekah Metzler – Augusta; Business and environmental groups that were at odds over Maine's Kids Safe Products Act have reached agreement on a proposal to modify the law, which created a process for identifying and banning dangerous chemicals.
Drought likely to affect Kansas wheat
Portland Press Herald - 5/12/2011.
Wichita, Kan. – Drought-plagued Kansas farmers are expected to harvest far less winter wheat this season from fewer acres, according to a new government report released Wednesday. In its monthly crop report, Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service predicted the state's winter wheat production will be down 27 percent from last year to 261.8 million bushels. That would be the lowest production in Kansas since 1996.
