Harvest Celebration Thursday, October 1, 6 PM

You are invited to a Harvest celebration to honor the hard work our volunteers and supporters who have helped to make this year successful and fun! A special screening of "Growing Local", a series of vignettes documenting the trials and tribulations of farmers working to sustain their families and homes and the inter-connectivity of Maine's small farms, consumers, and the local food movement, will be followed with a casual discussion lead by Maine Farmland Trust.
A little music, some great food, and a little drink (bring your own) for an evening of fun and enlightenment! 
Please email info@morrisfarm.com or call 882-4080 to rsvp.
Thank you.







The Morris Far
m Trust
   is both a working farm and an educational resource for the communities of mid coast Maine. 
As non-profit, educational, membership organization, T
he Morris Farm Trust promotes the values of sustainable agriculture and stewardship of the earth through education, demonstration and community involvement by providing:
  • A local farm and landscape that provides food, education, recreation, and pride in Midcoast Maine for many generations
  • Agricultural education for people of all ages, particularly local public school students
  • Responsible farming on the land in Wiscasset with the help and support of our whole community
  • The consumption of locally-grown food
  • Sustainable agriculture techniques
  • The value of manual labor as an essential pillar of American culture and education
  • Aesthetically and environmentally-sensitive land-use planning
  • The preservation of a distinct regional identity and local traditions that will strengthen our community from within and attract residents, businesses, and visitors to our area
  • The essential connections between people, land, and meaningful labor

The Morris Farm Trust recognizes that local, ecologically-sound farming is an essential yet threatened part of our heritage. As the traditional working landscapes of Maine continue to disappear, there is an intensifying need to support agriculture that is sustained from the work and wisdom of people within our community.
