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 now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
We’ve simply run out of room to expand fishing
Treehugger - 12/8/2010.
By Matthew McDermott – Sorry to be the downer on the already depressing subject of overfishing, but a new study in the journal PLoS ONE just reinforces the notion that we're fishing the world's oceans at rates far in excess of what they can take.
A Dangerous Pesticide That Will Soon Be All Over California
The Atlantic - 12/8/2010.
By Samuel Fromartz – This week, California, which has among the most rigorous pesticide regulations in the nation, approved methyl iodide for use. This came despite the unanimous findings of its own scientific panel against approval of the chemical. "It is my personal opinion that this decision will result in serious harm to California citizens, and most especially to children," wrote panel member Theodore Slotkin.
Rebuilding the food pyramid for 2010
The Boston Globe - 12/8/2010.
By M.E. Malone – Five years ago, Greek-style yogurt wasn’t in the dairy case and acai was an obscure Amazon berry. That was 2005, the last time the United States revised the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and its visual emissary, the food pyramid. This month, the federal departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services will release the 2010 dietary guidelines, updated every five years since 1980.
A Seed Library Grows in the Hudson Valley
Civil Eats - 12/8/2010.
By Paula Crossfield – There is a lot of talk these days about the need for more new entrants willing to fill in when older farmers retire (the average age of farmers in this country is 57 years old). But there has not been much discussion about rebuilding the support system, from infrastructure to community, that will keep those young farmers on the land. The Hudson Valley Seed Library is an example of an effort that does both of these things.
