Since the fall of 2021, Blue Hill Heritage Trust has been collaborating with Ann Pollard-Ranco and Kathy Pollard to create and enhance edible permaculture in places on Blue Hill Heritage Trust land. This is for the benefit of both wildlife and people. The goal is to create shared spaces, as well as food, which will foster cross-cultural dialog between communities on the Blue Hill peninsula and Wabanaki communities for whom the peninsula is traditional homeland. In addition to establishing ecology and cross-cultural spaces, the goal of this project is to plant a set of values in the land that see that humans have a role to play in creating beauty, abundance, and biodiversity in the world – that this is probably their highest purpose in these days of climate change and ecological instability.
