Event Description

At the Chautauqua, to be held at several venues in Midcoast and Downeast Maine August 13-15 and co-sponsored by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), the Greenhorns will host a mixer for the state’s many new young farmers, alongside veteran MOFGA members; sponsor a presentation by author Elaine Weiss on the World War II era “Woman’s Land Army” phenomenon; and bring together young farmer experts for workshops in seed saving, beekeeping, broom-making, sweet grass and seaweed harvesting, heritage work songs, New England stone wall mending, knot-tying, falconry, and even urban rooftop farming. The weekend festivities will conclude with a screening of rare archival agricultural films at a historic Grange Hall in Machias, hosted by the artist-agrarian group the Beehive Collective. Local foods prepared by young chefs, organic farm visits, and music and dance will fill out this unique schedule of events.
