Spuds and Sustainability at Rustlewood


The Green Team at Rustlewood

We love what's happening at Greenlaw Gardens at Rustlewood Farm! Shapleigh Middle School's Green Team, in partnership with Rick Greenlaw, experienced first hand the wonders of locally grown food while harvesting potatoes they had planted last spring. The potatoes will be served at the Kittery schools during September's Maine Harvest Lunch Week.

2014 Friend of Kittery Conservation Award Winner

Rob Nichols with his award at KLT's Annual Meeting

KLT was pleased to recognize Rob Nichols, volunteer Project Manager for the conservation of the 300-acre Rustlewood Farm. Rob, who is a former KLT Board member, worked skillfully, tirelessly, and with great spirit to make this complex, multi-year effort a success. In his moving acceptance talk, he made a persuasive case for land conservation being a community effort. Rob's work is a testament to what is accomplished by Kittery residents for the well-being of our community.


KLT's Annual Meeting and Picnic

KLT's Annual Meeting and Picnic Luncheon was deemed a great success by all who attended. It was a gorgeous day to take in the view from Fort Foster as people visited and tucked into sliced meat and cheese from Carl's Meat Market, homemade salads and apple crisp, and bread and cookies from Beach Pea Baking Co. Thank you to all who donated the delicious food! The focus then turned to the Annual Meeting, followed by a talk given by Town Manager Nancy Colbert Puff, and the presentation of the Friend of Kittery Conservation Award.
