A Community Supported Agriculture and Fisheries Fair will be held Sunday, Feb. 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Broadway in Rockland.

With community supported agriculture and community supported fisheries people commit to purchasing a share of the coming harvest before the season begins. The benefit is support for local farms and fishermen while getting locally grown and harvested food direct from the producer at a fair price.

Farms represented at the fair will include Dandelion Spring Farm, Hatchet Cove, Broken Acres, Agricola, Weskeags Farm and others. Some farms may have products for sale. The church, in celebrating the offerings of land and sea farmers, may have a soup available that includes locally raised produce and fish. Additionally, the church’s shrimp cookbook will be offered for sale.

At 4 p.m. there will be a free showing of the documentary “A Sea Change” in the sanctuary. The film follows the quest of a retired teacher trying to learn more about the impact of climate change on the oceans. He discovers that excess carbon dioxide is dissolving in the oceans, causing them to become more acidic with potentially dire consequences for shellfish. The film also depicts his relationship with his grandson and concerns about what sort of world he is leaving for future generations.

The event is co-sponsored by the Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association, the Maine Council of Churches, and local organizations. Admission is free.
