18 Oct Edible Education on Maine Family Vacations
Anyone who loves apples and is up here on Maine family vacations, or perhaps up scouting for a future Maine snowmobile adventure, should head to Unity, Maine for the Maine organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s Great Maine Apple Day!
Taking place at the Common Ground Education Center on October 22, 2010 from 12pm – 4pm, this rain or shine event will offer educational programs, contests and of course lots of apples and apple goodies!
Programs will include classes in fruit tree pruning, cooking with old time apple recipes, and exploration of Maine’s rich apple history, how-to adventures in wine and cider making and, of course, organic tree care.
There will also be an ‘identify that apple’ area for people to bring apples species from their backyard trees to have them identified. A vendor area will offer local and organic apples, apple products, cheeses and other local handmade goods. And did we mention the homemade pie contest? This is an event apple lovers will not want to miss!
Admission is $4 dollars per person ($2 for members of MOFGA & Maine Pomological Society)
