Wertheim interviewed for WMTW about community gardens in Maine

WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) spoke to Frank Wertheim, associate professor of agriculture/horticulture at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension in York County, about the proliferation of community gardens across Maine in recent years. Wertheim told WMTW that community gardens have been popular in urban areas for decades but have steadily expanded into small towns and even rural areas over the past 15 to 20 years. He noted that there are now at least eight community gardens in York County and it seems more are being planned each year all across Maine.
