Belfast Garden Club Program

February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Waldo County Bounty presentation with Mattie J. Bamman, Writer, Homesteader, Co-founder WCB

Launched in response to the pandemic, Waldo County Bounty has responded to local food insecurity through the power of gardening. A countywide network of volunteers—gardeners, farmers, educators, and service providers—work to strengthen the Waldo County food system as a whole by ensuring everyone has access to fresh, locally-grown foods.

In this presentation, you’ll learn about WCB’s programs—Farm-to-Pantry, Gleaning, and Gardening, as well WCB’s many partners (BGC is one!). A writer and homesteader, Mattie J. Bamman was raised in the back-to-the-land movement in Downeast Maine. For 15 years he worked as a culinary travel writer. In 2018, he and his wife established a homestead and large garden using the “lasagna gardening” method, which he documented through the Ravenous Farmer channel on YouTube. In 2020, he helped launch Waldo County Bounty.
