Community Supported Forest Memberships
The Celebration Tree Community Supported Forest will be a place for families and people to connect with nature and each other through trees, wellness, art, food, and water. Together with our community, Celebration Tree Farm and Wellness Center and Land in Common Community Land Trust are bringing 110 acres of forest land on Abenaki Territory, now rural Durham, Maine, into a lands commons so that it is preserved, used and enjoyed. Through a new membership program, community members in Southern Maine can invest in the forest and develop a relationship with the forest and receive benefits for their families.
Become a Founding Member!
In 2020, we are launching the Community Supported Forest Member and we want you to be a founding member. This year during the COVID crisis, you can help preserve land and have a place for you and your family to go outside of the city or town and enjoy the forest and camping. The Community Supported Forest is supporting physical distancing and will be staying safe while we build our connection and spend time in nature.
We are seeking ten families to become our founding members and launch the Community Supported Forest this year. You can become a member and/or support a low-income community member with a membership. Our founding members get the first pick of campsites and help develop the vision.
We are excited to share our forest with you.
