WABI covers 24th annual Rural Living Day

WABI (Channel 5) reported on the 24th annual Rural Living Day at Mount View High School in Thorndike. The event, which is hosted by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Waldo County Extension Association, offered workshops that ranged from Maine’s native bees to cooking with seaweed, WABI reported. Proceeds are used to help Waldo County youth attend UMaine Extension Tanglewood 4-H Camp in Lincolnville. Richard Kersbergen, a UMaine Extension educator on sustainable dairy and forage systems, said Rural Living Day is a great spring event to get people interested in gardening. “We try and focus in on local interests of course, but we have a variety of people here with great diversity of topics from worrying about gut health to composting with worms and forging for mushrooms. We try to have a real broad spectrum of things for people to be interested in,” he said.
