Wildlife Habitat Tour


Community Happenings
Jul 13, 2019
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join Midcoast Conservancy for a tour of Susie O’Keefe's farm. Walk a restoration and forage forest planting initiative on 20 acres in Montville. This property was stripped of a mature forest and top soils in 2012/13. In 2014 O’Keeffe purchased the property and began an experimental restoration effort using permaculture techniques and native plants. There will be time for discussion about native/non-native plants, the needs of wildlife, and O'Keefe's hope to re-create a “commons" where people can harvest food and medicine, learn about coexisting with wildlife, and find inspiration. Handouts will be available on all of the species planted so far, and what each one offers wild animals and people.
