October 17, 2018 – Wednesday, 5 p.m. Pine Root Farm, 1000 Pequawket Trail, Steep Falls, Maine. Join us for a tour of Pine Root Farm and a conversation with Ruby Nelson about her work on food access.  Ruby uses five different models on her farm to share fresh produce with low income Mainers. She'll provide an overview about how her work developed and open up the conversation for others to share their models, experiences, or questions. We'll also discuss the UMaine Extension Harvest for Hunger program and how Master Gardener's and other volunteer groups are working with farmers like Ruby to address food security. Farmers, community partners, volunteers, and any other interested parties are welcome. Potluck supper. For information email alibby@mofga.org.
