This summer, young farmers take to the seas— shipping organic food from Maine to Boston, by ship!.
The gathering of TALL SHIPS, is this weekend in beautiful Portland Maine— and a prime location to meet farmers and mariners both.
Come visit the young farmers who are coordinating this futurist pageant of logistics, using the power of the wind to capture imaginations and new markets for the rural economies of this tall state.
And come see the wooden schooner, the Harvey Gamage, a 131 foot schooner that will carry the cargo southwards.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday (July 18-20) they’ll be tabling with their wares as part of the tall ships armada.
On Monday they’re throwing a “ TTIP Afterparty” at Thompson’s Point, on the waterfront in Portland Maine with four amazing live bands and a teach in by Food and Water Watch’s Sarah Alexander.
