Transforming our relationship with farming and food for a healthier planet

We are a one-of-a-kind place on the coast of Maine that connects farmers, eaters, and learners to the land and animals at the core of our food systems.

A sustainable coastal farm for nearly sixty years, Wolfe’s Neck is home to an oceanfront campground, leading demonstration farm, and educational resource center for innovative practices in regenerative agriculture.

A Better Way to a Cooler Planet: Water, Carbon, & Microbes

Thursday, February 13th, 5:30-7:30pm
$5 suggested donation

Join us for a talk and discussion with Spero Latchis, founder of Living Soil Network. He’ll share how we can use simple practical methods to quickly cool the earth and create climate stability. Our planet functions as a symbiotic ecosystem. When we examine climate from this scientific perspective, solutions present themselves that are not apparent by focusing on carbon dioxide alone. By understanding the natural cycles of microbes, plants, soil, and water, we discover nature’s key to restoring a healthy living planet.

Light refreshments at 5:30, talk begins at 6:00.

"Pancakes, Pancakes!" Snack and Story

Afterwards, we’ll head back inside to warm up, and use our fresh eggs and Stonyfield milk to make ourselves some delicious pancakes!
