Norm Steele passes away

We were saddened to learn of the passing of UMaine Extension Master Gardener Norm Steele last Sunday. Norm was such an integral part of our Extension family for the last 25 years and we will miss him.

He never tired teaching others how to make seed tape, heading up the Plant-A-Row Program (now Maine Harvest for Hunger) or raising seedlings with Elementary students in Portland. Norm was in the first class of Master Gardeners in our county and did so much to make the program as successful as it is today.

Our condolences to Norms family.
