Missy Greene and Eric Ziner have dual careers going on at their yellow Birch Farm on Deer Isle . they are both artists and farmers. Here is a spring morning with the season's new kids and Eric doing welding.
Dennis Carter and Anneli Carter Sunqvist of the Deer Isle Hostel presented a slide show of their joint project as homesteaders and hostel owners in Deer Isle at the Reversing Falls Sanctuary as part of the Lenten Series titled SPIRITUALITY OF THE EARTH.. A lively discussion followed the slide presentation about the concepts of making a positive impact on the land and being self sufficient, off the grid with no indoor plumbing. Anneli has written a book documenting a full year as homesteaders. Please view their blog www.Deer Isle hostel.com for full information. I recommend watching the Utube video about their Homesteaders of the Year award by Mother Earth News, 2013. Dennis & Anneli are paired with Deer isle Artist Siri Beckman as part of the 2014 Farm/Art Exchange
