Throughout the year, MOFGA hosts hundreds of meetings, workshops, conferences, dinners, and festive gatherings. Many take place at our Common Ground Education Center in Unity, Maine. And many more happen at farms, businesses, and other venues throughout the state. We maintain a comprehensive Calendar of Events on MOFGA.org related to farming, gardening and environmentally friendly living Maine and the Northeast.
