Your voice matters!

Are you part of the midcoast community? Join Maine Coast Heritage Trust and help shape future programming at our Aldermere Farm and Erickson Fields preserves in Rockport.

Aldermere Farm and Erickson Fields became preserves of MCHT in 1999 and 2009 respectively. Since then, MCHT has maintained the preserves as a working farms and educational centers, helping visitors deepen their appreciation for land conservation and sustainable agriculture. Over the past 20 years, programs have included youth halter-training calves, teens growing vegetables for food pantries, aspiring farmers learning how to manage cattle and vegetable operations, and families building raised beds in their backyards. The farm preserves have also served as community hubs where nonprofits and community groups host their own events and workshops, school groups take fields trips, and visitors play and exercise.

MCHT will host three online Community Listening Sessions (10/18 at 10 AM, 10/19 at noon, and 10/21 at 6 PM) to learn how people like you utilize Aldermere and Erickson Fields. We want to serve our community as best we can though our programing and outreach—and your input is critical. Anyone is welcome to participate and may register here.
