At MOFGA’s Common Ground Education Center in Unity, Maine.

Fall fruit season is here! Join us at MOFGA for a day of celebration of apples & other delicious tree fruit. There will be guided tours of the Maine Heritage Orchard, workshops, cider pressing & help identifying unknown apples – learn more about that process here. Also:

  • Educational displays about fruit trees and a huge display of heritage apples;
  • Apple art activities for kids (and adults) – screenprinting, apple stamps and more;
  • A panel discussion about growing pears in Maine, a talk by Angus from Rocky Ground Cider on cidermaking for beginners, and a 2022 Apple Growing Season Debrief and Q&A with Glen Koehler of UMaine Cooperative Extension;
  • Heritage apple sampling – come discover your favorite!

More details on the event can be found here.

We can’t run this event without volunteers! If you’d like to lend a hand for a few hours you can see available volunteer shifts here. Hope to see you there!
