Horticulture - Gardens at Tidewater Farm

 The University of Maine Gardens at Tidewater Farm, in Falmouth, promote the Harvest for Hunger Program and provide education opportunities for children and adults. This Master Gardener Project grew 1540 pounds of produce during the 2016 gardening season and donated it to Wayside Food Programs for distribution to local food pantries and community meals programs; hosted a variety of educational events; and provided needed space for hands-on learning.
