Come learn about BHHT's Farm Project With Bill Giordano
Bill Giordano will discuss his vision for and arts and engineering entrepreneurship program that will be based out of BHHT’s 14-acre farm in Blue Hill. Doing business as Valley of the Stars Farm, and working closely with Tinder Hearth since 2009, Giordano has been connecting social science, arts, and ag engineering goals into the farm recently purchased from the Howell/Bushman family (now of Surry), who managed its fields and orchards since the early 90’s.

Giordano is currently a UMaine Doctoral Fellow, where he is refining designs for thermal mass heater/ventilation systems for greenhouse and high tunnel food production the he designed through his work with the Maine Sustainable Agriculture Society. He’ll present a business plan for the Blue Hill farm that will mark a shift from a family farm into a community supported business resource.

In this presentation, Giordano will center food production and food system engineering strategies as foundational sciences that connect STEAM education and opportunities for entrepreneurship in Maine’s changing food and natural resource economies. He’ll also lead a community discussion around plans for a Blue Hill summer stage at the farm that will host a series of talks and performances as well as community agriculture research and demonstrations.
