How do we live wisely, with positive impact, in this place?
Living-in-Maine Semester at a glance
Living-in-Maine is a 90 day high school semester for learners who want to know, "How do we live wisely, with positive impact, in Maine?" Set on the teaching homestead of the Maine Local Living School, students are immersed in an ongoing experience of sustainability and place-based learning. Daily and practical participation with shelter, water, energy and food inspires important questions about our place and its connections with the planet: How much can we take? How do we practice reciprocity? Can we improve a place? What happened here in the past? What is happening here now? How do we make positive change?
Through life on the homestead, study, and community engagement, students have the opportunity to employ their whole selves - head, hands, and hearts - in search of answers.
