d78a6313-5b7a-41fd-bf06-0f55897fa81aYou may have seen these awesome #SCHOOLGARDENGROWN stickers in the exhibition hall at MOFGA’s Common Ground Country Fair last year, recognizing fresh and true-to-type produce from school gardens around the state. After the awesome success of that pilot program, MSGN is teaming up with Maine Fairs across the state to bring school garden grown recognition to the next level!





We are excited to be partnering with the following fairs in 2016:

  • Farmington
  • Clinton
  • Fryeburg
  • Acton
  • Windsor
  • Ossipee Valley
  • Presque Isle
  • Farmfest
  • Appleton Village School

Want to add your fair to the list? Contact your local Cooperative Extension and see if they can help, or get in touch with us and we’ll work with you on promoting your school garden at your local fair exhibition hall. We’d love to see this project grow to every fair in the state!

If you see these, tag the Maine School Garden Network in your social media posts, and use the hashtag #SCHOOLGARDENGROWN to keep promoting this program!
