Wertheim interviewed by Maine Monitor about increased interest in gardening

Frank Wertheim, associate Extension professor of agriculture/horticulture with University of Maine Cooperative Extension in York County, was quoted in the Maine Monitor about the increased interest in gardening for community resilience. Wertheim said that demand for gardening support and resources “has been off the charts,” but tracking the growth in local food production is hard, though, since there is no statewide data repository or association of all the local gardening initiatives.
