Week Three

Greenhouses w/solar thermal 6"Wx3"H

Week three consisted of more traveling, talking with farmers, documenting, and painting.

Chewonki Foundation Farm

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.
