Share Your Story

In a new segment of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener, which we’re calling “MOFGA Stories,” we will publish a selection of first-person nonfiction stories submitted by our readers. MOFGA asks you – our readers and community members – to share your experiences as gardeners, farmers, homesteaders, soil stewards, seed savers, food preservers, flower arrangers, herbalists, beekeepers, shepherds, green builders, low impact foresters, crafters and makers and doers of all sorts.

With each issue of The MOF&G, we invite you to respond to a theme. These topics are general on purpose; they’re merely a jumping off point to indulge your memories.
