Schooner Carries Maine Products to Boston
August 29, 2015
A grassroots organization has begun shipping Maine products to Boston via wind power on a newly refurbished fishing schooner, according to an article on BangorDailyNews.com.
The first leg of Maine Sail Freight began early Friday, August 28, 2015, as 6,400 pounds of Maine products left Portland en route to Boston Harbor and the Boston Public Market. The Greenhorns, a grassroots organization representing young farmers, stages the event to re-examine methods of trade and to get consumers and producers to think differently.
