E2Tech is teaming up with the Maine Sustainable Agriculture Society to host a farm tour and networking event at Six River Farm in Bowdoinham.

Six River Farm’s owners and operators Nate Drummond and Gabrielle Gosselin have been farming year round vegetables since 2009. They grow vegetables in soil and undercover of their hoop houses through the coldest and darkest parts of the Maine winter. Their style of “mid-tech” winter farming was popularized by Eliot Coleman at his Four Season Farm in Hancock County in the ‘80s and 90’s.

Six River powers their farm with a solar array, and has heated their greenhouses with ground mounted propane heaters that deliver heat under crop blankets and prevent freezing by heating to about 38 degrees on cold days and nights that lack ample solar gain. 

We are eager to cross-pollinate farmers, engineers, solar designers, HVAC specialists and E2Tech network. Please join us for a farm tour at 4, brief remarks at 5 (or so) and networking and cross-pollination until 7 or so. If it rains, we'll be in the barn. We'll have chilled beverages, and light appetizers from the farm. Register today!
