CHERRYFIELD, ME — Director of Service Programs Wendy Harrington recently announced the Mission’s collaboration with a new group called Downeast Roots; “a group of local organizations who promote each other’s work, share resources, and work together on projects for the benefit of our community,” according to the group web site.
Other member groups are the Women’s Health Resource Library, Maine Outdoor School, TREE, Mano en Mano, and the Milbridge Public Library.
The purpose of Downeast Roots is to promote collaboration among Downeast area organizations in order to strengthen our overall impact. We are committed to fostering a strong sense of belonging while ensuring that our community is a place where people, their cultural identities, and the environment thrive.

Incredible Edible “brings people together,” said Chris Kuhni, executive director of the Women’s Health Resource Library, which is behind the effort. In fact, the idea for the cookbook, “The Humble Veggie,” came from the fact that garden visitors enjoyed swapping recipes and cooking advice.
The gardens provide food for the community as well as exercise and social time.
As word spread about the gardens, everyone has been supportive.
Kuhni said WHRL is offering vegetable cooking classes. A harvest table cooking class runs from July through March at the Maine Seacoast Mission campus in Cherryfield. Others are in the works.
“We’ve wanted to get the cooking piece in there for a long time,” Stewart said.
