Living off grid in mid coast Maine with my wife and son Wilder. Working diligently towards self sustainability. A chef with a strong interest in inspiring others to forage, farm, and eat the best food available.

How did you find this particular group? (word of mouth? internet? etc.)

My father-in-law told me about the group when i was making plans to move to Maine from New Hampshire.

What interests you about this particular group?

I am more of a traditional gardener and looking to incorporate raised beds and permaculture concepts to existing gardens I am working with. Breaking away from the traditional rows and looking to build healthy soil in numerous zones on the land.

Are you living/gardening/growing predominantly in an urban, suburban or rural setting?

My wife and I share 60 acres of land with our landlord in East Waterboro. There are 4 main garden beds, each at least 70x35 feet. Numerous perennial beds around the land.

Do you have any sustainable/resilient living skills that you'd be interested in sharing? Any that you'd like to learn?

    Hi Franky, welcome! Are you working locally as a chef? I know some about plant medicine, worked a t an herbal apothecary, plan to set up a small one in my kitchen, would like to know more, grow medicinal herbs, create medicines. That might make an interesting working group to focus on growing and creating plant medicines. Lots of knowledge to gain and share. Trisha
