Local Foods Team

The Strategic Vision 2020 established at the Catalyst includes the goal: "Most of the food we eat is locally grown. There is an abundance of locally grown food available throughout our communities. For example, 80% of food used in schools is locally grown. We have revitalized area farms and reconnected our rural and urban economies."

To help meet this vision, one goal of the Grow and Support Local Foods Team is to establish community gardens. Since the inception of Sustain Mid Maine Coalition, four community garden plots have been created: Moor St. and North St. in Waterville, Oakland, and Daillaire St. in Winslow.

The plots are 4X6 foot raised beds and must be maintained organically. (Other restrictions apply.) Garden plots cost a minimum of $10
