Maine Land Share 2020

The Maine Land Share Project connects people who want to grow food with people who have land to share.

As our communities struggle with the rippling effects of the COVID-19 virus, there is no better time then now to share what we have and to reconnect with the healing and nourishing power of land. 

Please follow these links to describe what you’re seeking or what you can offer:

We will work to find matches that meet everyone’s needs and requests.

In making these connections, we prioritize requests from members of communities most affected by historical harms and current social and economic challenges.

We may not always be able to find a match in your location, but we will do our best.

If a match is made, we will help to:

  • design a land sharing arrangement that works best for everyone
  • create a written land sharing agreement
  • make connections with knowledgeable people who can provide gardening/farming advice and support
  • source necessary seeds, seedlings, tools, and other materials
  • troubleshoot needs and challenges that arise during the season
