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.

A 2019 Fair Full of Great Memories

December 2019

With three beautiful days, the 2019 Common Ground Country Fair passed by quickly. It’s hard to believe it’s already over. The Fair has given us sun-filled memories of community and teamwork to reflect upon and to hold close during the coming winter months.

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.

Kevin Martin – The Art of Thinking and the Thinking of Art

2019 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Design Winner

June 2019

Art, agriculture and education intersect uniquely for Kevin Martin, winner of the 2019 poster design contest for the Common Ground Country Fair.

“Over the years,” he says, “I’ve been thinking that being an artist is less about what I produce than how I think” – that is, seeing things from many dimensions, being willing to take risks, and approaching problems in unconventional ways in order to understand them. “I’ve taken that mindset to everything I’ve done in my professional career.”
