Press Herald lists UMaine Extension, Mitchell Center as sustainability education resources

The Portland Press Herald named the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions as resources for those looking to learn about sustainability. UMaine Extension regularly offers workshops, courses, literature and videos on sustainable farming and gardening, soil testing, composting, beekeeping and food preservation. The Mitchell Center hosts conferences, lectures and events that focus on issues and solutions in sustainability, and has an online archive of information, publications and events. “We feel it’s really important that people have access to as much information as possible to make their own decisions,” said Bridie McGreavy, an assistant professor of communication who collaborates with the Mitchell Center. “Educating people is an important part of solving problems.”
