AUGUST 11, 2018 • 12–8 • Norway, Maine
A Celebration of Western Maine’s
Local Foods Movement in Downtown Norway
You'll hear music as you approach downtown Norway starting at 12pm, interspersed with information about local farmers, local food, local brews, and local action. We believe that to have an impact globally, we have to come together and create locally. Creating a local food system that nourishes body, mind and soul is one place to start and you can find out all about it when you come and enjoy.
Local farms featuring veggies, fruits, dairy, meats, wild edibles, honey and maple syrup, along with farming practices including organic seeds and growing, permaculture and biodynamics.
Local processors, featuring baked goods, cheese, ice cream, specialty foods and snacks, beverages and local brews. All grown and created in the foothills of Western Maine.
Food access and nutrition, featuring community and school gardens, food pantries and summer meal sites, gleaning and FoodCorp, SNAP and WIC programs, Maine Harvest Bucks
Education and support featuring Local Food Councils, Farm to School, 4-H and the Cooperative Extension, the local USDA office, nutrition education, the Maine Food Atlas, and culinary arts
Enjoy a harvest bounty, and learn about how this agricultural revival is building healthier communities with stronger economies, while nurturing our natural environment.
The Festival will showcase the food and agricultural renaissance in the foothills of Western Maine.
An activist is one who is
actively involved in creating community.
Maine brews are all the buzz with over 70 breweries including nano-, micro-, and regional craft-breweries. The Festival will highlight brewers in and around the western foothills of Maine and beyond with a focus on Maine grains, hops, and malts. Join us for a beer!
Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.
“The artist, like the scientist, has a crucial role to perform in our society,” John Sabraw explained to HuffPost. “See things differently, act on this vision, report the failures and successes.”
I know there is strength
in the differences between us.
I know there is comfort, where we overlap.
