Finding Common Ground

The Common Ground Country Fair starts today in Unity, and runs through Sunday. Sponsored by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, this is Maine's most uncommon fair.

For those unfamiliar, the Common Ground Fair stresses organic and sustainable farming and gardening practices, and the celebration of rural living. As at any agricultural fair, there will be blue ribbons awarded for the largest veggies, and plenty of exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities for the kids. Also featured: Native American drumming, a speech by Dennis Kucinich, and the Harry S. Truman Manure Pitch-Off.
