The Common Ground Country Fair

It is with heavy hearts that we have decided not to move forward with an in-person Common Ground Country Fair this year. 

Our educational mission and commitment to our vendors continues. Here’s how you can take part in the spirit of Common Ground this year.

The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association is a broad-based community that educates about and advocates for organic agriculture, illuminating its inter­dependence with a healthy environment, local food production, and thriving communities.
