I'm wondering if anyone knows of a permaculture farm in midcoast Maine? I've heard a few people talk about one in Alna or Whitefield but they don't know where or who to contact. Thanks!

Hi Bill , I did a quick search and it turned up a few but not sure if any of them are what you are looking for.

Thanks Miles. Yeah, I've tried search engines but the Resilience Hub tends to dominate the results. Not that it is a bad thing but when I search for Alna I get results for Alan, or Whitefield I get results for Patrick Whitefield. Searching with quotes and qualifiers hasn't helped narrow it down.

Edit: Typo!

This is the third time in as many days that someone has mentioned Brooks, Maine. I guess I need to check that town out. Thanks Craig.

There used to be New Forest Institute but they had to close down due to money issues. The Portland Meetup group has a lot going on but it's a long drive so I've been reluctant to get involved with that. I've pretty much been going it alone for a couple years here. I've been using this site plus all of the free materials available elsewhere to start my project. Last year I started getting serious about permaculture and was able to see results right away. This year I'm adding dozens of trees, shrubs, perrenial veggies and fruit. I'm also going to raise a couple of pigs along with about 100 dual purpose chickens. It's by no means a permaculture farm, but I'm working on it.
It's nice to see others along the midcoast interested in permaculture.

Just stumbled on this local resource http://www.meetup.com/Maine-Sustainable-Living-and-Real-Food-Meet-Up/ Not a lot going on yet but we could change that.
 
Always! Wait. Never. Shut up. Look at this tiny ad.
