Gather & Grow Homestead Tour Series

Gather & Grow is our series of tours featuring homesteads, gardens and more. For the past several summers, we have explored homesteads and gardens throughout Maine. Tours have featured everything from forests to vegetable gardens to livestock to orchards. Hosts have been homesteading for a few years, or gardening for decades. These events are an opportunity to learn together and from one another, as well as to enjoy some beautiful spaces and places. See below for some tours we took via webinar during 2020, and please stay tuned for 2021 details.
