UMaine Cooperative Extension Backyard Locavore Day August 10

University of Maine Cooperative Extension in Cumberland County will hold the fifth annual Backyard Locavore Day, a self-guided tour of multiple gardens, on Saturday, August 10.

Events in Brunswick, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, Freeport, North Yarmouth, Portland, South Portland, Windham, Raymond and Yarmouth will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., rain or shine.

Backyard Locavore Day is designed to educate members of the public about do-it-yourself strategies for becoming a locavore, or someone who eats food grown or produced locally.

Demonstrations and talks will focus on gardening and food-preservation methods and will include food samples.

Registration is $15 in advance and $20 the day of the event; children under 12 are free. Registrants will receive a booklet with a map and site descriptions. Funds raised will go toward the UMaine Extension’s Cumberland County Food Preservation Program.
