Today is our neighbor's 60th wedding anniversary! After four years of sharing a hallway with Mary and Dale, we have had the honor of being first-hand witnesses to their never-waning kindness, grace, humility, and unfailing work ethic. As business owners, we all have to maneuver through obstacles on a daily basis and the Russell's are surely no exception, but regardless of whatever circumstance, Mary and Dale are always here (often well before we are) sporting smiles and positive attitudes. There could be no better representatives for not only the institution of marriage but also for the human race in general. Congratulations!
Harlow Gallery is seeking 10 Maine artists to participate in CSA II to be paired with 10 Maine farms. Each artist will seek inspiration in his or her counterpart’s life, work, landscape, ideals and challenges over the course of the 2017 growing season and create work based on their experiences and observations. Partnering farmers will be those operating CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) farms. A CSA farm offers shares at the beginning of the growing season and then provides fresh, seasonal food on a regular basis to each shareholding household throughout the growing season. Community Supported Agriculture is a grassroots response to the growing social and environmental problems of our modern industrial food system. Application deadline: September 1, 2016Details
