Week three consisted of more traveling, talking with farmers, documenting, and painting. On monday the 21st I returned to Crystal Springs and talked with Seth the head farmer as well as took many pictures of the different structures and animals. Tuesday I had a long day of visiting Morris, Sparrow, Leslie, and Goranson farms. The day was very successful as I was able to get some great pictures, paint a few watercolors and learn some about organic farming. Sparrow Farm was a
great example of organic farming as well as having one of Maine’s only solar powered greenhouse. On Thursday and Friday I traveled to the Chewonki Foundation and was able to visit their farm during my stay. A boys summer camp is held there during the summer. Campers help with some farming responsibilities and the produce is also frequently used in the meals that are served each day.
