Letter of Introduction

December 27, 2006
Greetings to Community Members
of the Maine Highlands Region

- This is a Letter of Introduction to our Maine Highlands Community Organic Forest-Garden, located in the Piscataquis County seat of Dover-Foxcroft.
- The Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Sangerville and Dover-Foxcroft is organizing a multi-faceted volunteer organization based on the principles of social justice, deep ecology and sustainable living for the benefit of all our citizenry.

We wish to establish on one site:
--a community garden following the tenets of organic gardening
--a demonstration garden that teaches the practices of permaculture, vegan farming and natural farming
--a public park amidst these gardens
--extensive nature trails in the surrounding meadows, woods and wetlands for self-guided tours and nature-study classes on non-motorized paths that eventually will lead into the center of town.

We are asking for your ideas and expertise, your labor and your enthusiasm, or simply your curiosity. Please join us for our first Public Meetings at:
on the corner of Rte. 23 (Main Street in Sangerville) and Church Street
- on: TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2007
at 6PM on each of these dates.

At these meetings, we hope to form a voluntary Board of Coordinators, organize a focus group for public presentations next spring on the book Gaia's Garden, and begin to assign project managers for the next growing season.
