Meet MOFGA Volunteer Sam May

December 2019

May’s involvement with MOFGA began soon after his return to Maine in 2011, but the roots of his involvement go back to 1981 to 1983, when he lived and worked at Mary and Tony Bok’s farm in Camden – where now-Congresswoman Chellie Pingree had been MOFGA’s first farm apprentice. He has been attending the Common Ground Country Fair since it was in Litchfield. Given his interest in the agricultural scene here, MOFGA invited him to join its board. He currently serves on its executive, finance and fundraising committees.

Meet MOFGA Volunteer Logan Johnston

September 2019

Logan Johnston is a farmer, former book publisher, musician and, most importantly to him, he is civically engaged. The many hats he wears or has worn in his hometown of Gardiner speaks to that commitment to his community. Johnston and his wife, Phyllis Gardiner, run Oaklands Farm, currently a commercial cow-calf operation on land that has been in Gardiner’s family since the 1750s. In 1990, when the family dairy closed, they were tasked with planning the future of the farm.

Meet MOFGA Volunteer Jo Ann Myers

June 2019

Jo Ann Myers comes from a farm family in northeastern Connecticut and spent a rather peripatetic lifestyle living in Alaska, Washington state and Kentucky while working on rural health systems. After that she and her husband, Wayne, finally landed in Waldoboro on the farm named after JoAnn's French Canadian ancestors, Beau Chemin Preservation Farm. Beau Chemin means "beautiful path," which certainly describes Myers' journey.

MOFGA Volunteer Aidan Richman

March 1, 2019 – When you talk with Aidan Richman, the words that keep coming up are “sustainability” and “ecology.” Now in his gap year after graduating from Portland High School, he is spending his time meeting new people and listening to their stories. The ones he heard at the Common Ground Country Fair last fall from volunteers, staff and fairgoers make him even surer that he will set his sights on an education that has those two principles at its core.
