WHRL Collaboration with MCHT
When the Incredible Edible Milbridge Project began to flourish, WHRL set its eyes on a four-and-a-half acre parcel of riverfront property along Main Street. With big dreams of growing organic vegetables and community spirit, WHRL approached the Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) about conserving this property. MCHT embraced the idea and purchased this land in 2015, enabling the WHRL to begin planning the next step for Incredible Edible Milbridge.
The 4.6 acre Main Street garden/park, Milbridge Commons, will include more pick-your-own vegetable gardens, an orchard, and walking trail. It will also include a children’s play area and an amphitheater.
