Wood Banks & Fuel Poverty in Maine

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – $20

Join us for a panel presentation featuring wood bank leaders from around the state of Maine who will share their stories of organizing and running wood banks. Sharing similarities with food pantries, wood banks provide firewood to neighbors facing heating insecurity and have a long standing in Maine. Recent federal funding and ever-increasing demand has tripled the number of wood banks in New England in the last ten years. Please join us to learn about these grassroots, volunteer organizations that use local wood banks to meet community needs.

Snacks and hot beverages will be provided to those attending in-person.


*This sliding scale registration is designed to make our workshops as accessible as possible by providing a range of pricing options, with a goal of ticket sales averaging in the middle. The recommended price for participation in this event is $5 for MOFGA members and $10 for non-members. Please pay what feels reasonable for you.
