GrowSmart Maine plans to hold its 2021 summit from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4.

In a continuation of last year’s summit model, the summit will be anchored in-person in Biddeford with satellite locations in Bangor, Calais, Caribou, Machias, and Sidney, Rangeley and Rumford. For those who prefer, the summit will also be fully virtual.

Keynote speakers will be Dr. Devashree Saha, senior associate of the World Resources Institute, and Kate Dufour, director of state and federal relations at the Maine Municipal Association.

Together, these two women aim to provide a global and a local perspective on the solutions Maine communities need to emerge from the coming decades of tumultuous change with a stable and strong economic infrastructure.
