KVO at 2017 Common Ground Fair

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Common Ground Fair, a “celebration of rural life”, is hosted annually in Unity by Maine Organic Farmers and Growers Association (MOFGA), and has long been a favorite event of mine every third weekend in September. Our state is fortunate to have the opportunity to bring together so many people regarding sustainability, agricultural, environmental and social justice concerns.

Every year there are new offerings and expansion of the simple ideas of coming together for the good of many. Whether one chooses to take one of the trains from either Unity or Thorndike to the Fair, take a tractor, bike, walk or drive, the experience is well worth the trip and the ever present crowds. There are exhibits, merchants, a huge farmers’ market, now 3 “Social and Political Tents”, and all kinds of livestock. The opportunities to learn are endless and it is truly worth a trip every September.
