Maine Farm Enterprise School (MFES) integrates education, entrepreneurship, and environmental stewardship. We bring communities together to build a new, collaborative model that combines a quality public school, an incubator for micro-enterprises, and a community investment fund. The central, transformative concept is that we gain economies of scale and efficacy not by getting bigger, but by integrating systems in a collaborative way, so that all components of the project serve and are served by the others. Together, we can save our natural heritage, create jobs, and help our young people envision a future in Maine. We anticipate launching the first three MFES projects in Fall 2010 in Lewiston/Auburn, Greater Portland, and the Midcoast region.
