Maine has a population of slightly more than 1,000,000, and one weekend each year it seems that most are in Unity for Common Ground, an event celebrating those who work the land and create with their hands. On a beautiful fall day, it’s a great place to be so come along and join the fun.
Common Ground is a great place to stock up on locally grown produce
or Maine made products ranging from syrup to natural medications.
One of the things that characterizes Maine is the many people who work with their hands, and Common Ground is a great showcase for their work.
Want something with a touch of whimsy? Find it here.
If you are drawn to color and texture, the fiber tent is the place for you. Here you’ll find handspun and dyed materials for kniting, weaving, felting
and rug hooking. Doesn’t it make your heart sing to see that the desire to keep old traditions alive still exists?
Hungry? You’ll find an abundance of food vendors. What makes Common Ground foodstuffs different from most fairs is that all is made of natural products. No overload of grease and sugar here!
In addition to visiting the numerous vendors, you can choose from many exhibits featuring farm animals.
If you can get close enough, you will be fascinated by the demonstrations of border collies herding sheep, goats and even ducks! The intellect of these dogs is absolutely amazing!
So much to see wears a body out making time out an absolute must so get a bite to eat and take in all the activity
or maybe find a quiet place and catch up on your reading. However you choose to enjoy Common Ground will be just right!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
Sunny Simple Sunday
