In April of 2012, Dr. Danner purchased Sunrise Farm, a beautiful 120-acre farm located in Belgrade, Maine. Sunrise Farm has 50 community garden plots available to the public. Each 1,000 square foot measures 25x40 ft and is located in prime Maine agricultural soil. Garden plots will be prepared in May and can be gardened until November. Additionally, there will be 25x20 ft no-till area for each gardener to use if they wish to plant perennial vegetables and fruits, heritage seed plants, two season vegetables, fall planted crops and fruit bushes. The community garden enables people without suitable land of their land to grow high-quality fruits and vegetables for themselves, their families, and their communities. Gardens provide a safe place for children to explore gardening and nature. All ages can acquire and share knowledge regarding gardening, cooking, nutrition, and health.
