Our Katahdin Newsletter - November 2018

Four years ago, Our Katahdin was born. It was born with nothing more than a strong belief in the people and the future of the Katahdin Region. People have been stepping forward with ideas for "small wins" ever since. We've learned a lot since our first fundraiser to decorate the bandstand for Christmas back in 2014, and our optimism for the future of the region has only grown.

As our portfolio of projects continues to grow in complexity, a top priority for us moving forward is to do a better job staying connected, well-informed, and involved in our shared work of moving our region forward. We never want Our Katahdin to be a typical nonprofit organization. We want it to be a movement, driven by diversity in ideas and collective action. This is the first edition of what we intend to be a regular newsletter to highlight the latest news and notify you of upcoming events and opportunities.

We hope you'll share this newsletter with your friends and family and encourage them to sign up for email updates as well. We're excited about what the future may hold, but moreover, we're excited to be together with you on this journey.

    Nice going! I believe the region is prime real estate for greenhouse technology such as Madison and Backyard Farms
