This fall students of permaculture in the Penobscot Valley and at UMaine have partnered with the LongGreenHouse home site in Orono. The partnership provides the opportunity to implement design strategies and practice growing and propagating perrenial fruits, nuts, berries, and vegetables. The opportunity is unique because it gives students and community members an opportunity to subsist and make a living by an immersive engagement with a typical suburban homesite. Something not otherwise practical unless one owns land of their own.
The project is open to research proposals, growing initatives, and small garden proposals from students and community members.
