MOFGA’s Farm & Homestead Day, June 16

 MOFGA has brought back Farm & Homestead Day, a hands-on skill-sharing event on Saturday, June 16th, in Unity, ME:

Farm & Homestead Day
MOFGA’s Common Ground Education Center, Unity, ME
Saturday, June 16, 2012
9am–3pm, gates open at 8:30am

Come and learn all you need to know and more about living in rural Maine. Learn how to build a goat milking stand from poles and scavenged wood, mow with a scythe and learn how to maintain your blade, build a bluebird nesting box, try your hand at building and operating a chicken tractor or go for a walk to learn about edible and medicinal plants. All that and MORE!

No charge but donations to help volunteer presenters pay for supplies will be greatly appreciated. Some workshops will have a materials fee if the participant gets to take home the item made.
