ORONO — The Maine Agricultural Mediation Program, which is part of University of Maine Cooperative Extension, has released its 2024 wall calendar.

The theme of this year’s calendar is “Farming and Tending to the Land and Sea Throughout the Seasons. It features twelve charming images from Maine-based artists that capture the essence of agricultural work and life. From vibrant fields of crops to somber coastal scenes, each image tells a unique story of Maine’s agricultural journey throughout the seasons.

Measuring 8.5 by 11 inches, the calendar is designed with wire binding for easy hanging. Copies are now available for purchase for $6.50, which includes shipping. Order a copy by visiting UMaine Extension’s website
