Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association
The purposes of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) are to help farmers and gardeners grow organic food, protect the environment, recycle natural resources, increase local food production, support rural communities, and illuminate for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound growing practices.
MOFGA staff and volunteers serve on the Alliance Policy, Communications, and Green Chemistry/Economic Development teams. Sharon Tisher represented the Alliance on the Governor's Task Force on Chemicals Policy in Maine. At its annual Common Ground Country Fair, MOFGA hosts Public Policy Teach-ins focusing on Alliance work priorities, and schedules keynote speakers with expertise in environmental health and toxics. MOFGA's former Executive Director, Russell Libby, was one of the participants in the Body of Evidence Report.
