Advocacy for a stronger Maine: GrowSmart Maine advocates for the relevant policy, regulatory, and legislative changes highlighted in these reports.
On-the-ground projects to create and share best practices: GrowSmart Maine works with engaged Maine communities to develop and share new designs for more livable communities. Visit Project Canopy, Maine Model Town and ReEnvisioning the Highway Strip for more information.
