COFGA is a club where students can manage Colby's organic garden—2 Feet 2 Bedrock—and green house, inform Colby's community about food production and agricultural sustainability, and meet new people!
We’re excited that you decided to sign up for COFGA, and we hope to spend time digging in the dirt, visiting local farms, and planning next year’s garden with you!
For more information on the garden, you can visit our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/COFGA).
We will be meeting at the garden this Sunday at 1:30 to continue harvesting veggies and to start prepping the beds for the winter. The garden is at the top of Runnals hill – for a map, click on the “Get Involved” tab on our website.
The Common Ground Country Fair, hosted by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, is happening next weekend, on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd of September. It is an event like no other – a large country fair celebrating the rural and agricultural traditions of Maine. It’s a blast, we highly recommend you check it out!
Peace, Love, and Farming,
Every year we have a few COOT groups come up the day before COOT for C2iT–Colby Community Involvement Trip. This year we had three COOTs come up, and we harvested onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, green beans, and peppers!
