Silent film: The Sam Levitt, a Maine sail freight project of the 1970's
Perhaps you've been following the several Sail Freight Projects, besides the recent maiden voyage of the Vermont Sail Freight Projects, there's New Dawn Traders in England, Sailing Vessel Kwai out of the Cook Islands, and a Tres Hombres, a project from the Netherlands!
Here's a great video:
We expect a lively discussion and airing of views during the moderated community brainstorming session which follows the panel. Under the mast of sail freight, this diverse set of stakeholders have quite a rich collaborative potential-- and for strongly held opinions. Please, join us for this first potluck discussion, bring a dish to share and your ideas. May we use the full surface area of Maine, and its long, navigable coast, as the medium to express pro-actively and poetically some of our highest aspirations for the future we'll build together.
This event is presented by The Greenhorns, Penobscot Marine Museum, MOFGA, Maine Farmland Trust, Windjammers Association, the Boothbay Farmers Market, and Tranquility Grange of Lincolnville, ME.
Happy Spring everyone, tell us how it goes!
