John Rebar, executive director of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with the Morning Sentinel about the growth of agriculture in Maine for an article on the Good Will-Hinckley charter school’s latest project to reflect on its agricultural mission. Rebar said there is a growing interest in agriculture among young people and there is a need for agriculture education. He says programs such as those offered at the charter school in Hinckley will help students look at farming as a potential career.
