Long Branch School & General Store
Our future challenges could be many - depleting energy resources, rising inflation, global climate change, food safety and unsustainable practices. But they share common solutions. We must re-localize our economy and relearn the lost skills that made us more self-sufficient and our lives more sustainable. The Long Branch School & General Store in Bowdoinham was formed to meet these challenges. Our course offerings are extremely varied and include worm composting: chicken raising; artisan-bread making; general construction; marketing and social media for small business; pie making; felting; pottery making; meditation; bluegrass music; woodcarving; and Permaculture. Courses are continually being added to our curriculum.
