Have you heard? Maine is planting – from Buckfield to Bridgewater and Whitefield to Winterville, beginning gardeners and horticultural pros are digging in the dirt and putting down roots. A flowering plant, herb or veggie, or a single shrub or tree is all it takes to join a growing movement and reap huge rewards.

Ready to be more active? Be greener? Give back to your community? Get more value from your home? You can. It’s simpler than you think. When you plant a single seed, it comes back to you in spades.
So spread the word across the state:
Don’t just stand there—Plant Something!
