UNITY – The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association needs hundreds of volunteers for the Common Ground Country Fair – its annual celebration of rural living.

The fair will take place on Sept. 19, 20 and 21 at the fairgrounds. The association also seeks volunteers for set-up Sept. 13 to 18 and clean-up Sept. 22 to Oct. 5.

Volunteers get free admission to the fair each day that they work and a meal in the common kitchen for each four-hour volunteer shift. Volunteers also receive a volunteer T-shirt. There are some additional benefits for certain projects.

This year fair coordinators are especially looking for extra volunteer help with parking and traffic. Several areas need management help from people who would like to get more involved in planning the event.

To receive a volunteer registration form contact the Common Ground Country Fair Volunteers, PO Box 170, Unity, ME 04988; call 568-4142; e-mail [email protected]; for visit www.mofga.org.
