The mission of GrowSmart Maine is to build lasting prosperity without sacrificing the quality of life that defines Maine. People choose to live in Maine for many reasons: our iconic landscapes and architecture, our strong sense of local community and our gritty, independent spirit. GrowSmart Maine seeks to protect and foster these strengths because we believe they are the foundation for lasting prosperity. Our goals are community revitalization, conservation of farmland, forest and shoreland, and support for sustainable economic development that will benefit not just today's Mainers but our children and grandchildren. As the ONLY statewide organization linking ALL these interrelated goals, GrowSmart Maine works with myriad other organizations and municipalities to convene discussion and take actions to revitalize our communities and economy while protecting our natural resources.
