Sweet sweet blueberries

This past July the Acadia Community Farm received a wonderful donation from the Gulf of Maine Institute (GOMI), who expressed their thanks for the farm’s participation in the program by donating two high bush blueberry bushes.

GOMI is an organization that is dedicated to preserving the Gulf of Maine and its watershed. This summer Acadia hosted a conference where youth from both the United States and Canada came together to explore topics pertaining to climate change and sustainability. Naturally, the farm took the roll as a space for groups of young adults to explore the realities of where food comes from and how that effects both the environment and society.

We at the farm would like to thank everyone involved in the GOMI conference for their donation, and show what beautiful and delicious fruit their gift provides!
