Maineland: A town looks to the past to save its future

"Maineland" profiles entrepreneur Amber Lambke and her efforts to revitalize the post-industrial small town of Skowhegan, Maine with the Somerset Grist Mill, an old-fashioned grain and oat mill. Since opening in 2014, the mill has facilitated the resurgence of wheat farming, baking, and other small businesses in the surrounding area.

I live in a small town in Northern Wisconsin, and we are fortunate in the amount of businesses we have in the area (both big, but our downtown is definitely in rough shape. This video made me think of my area and give me hope that we can keep improving here too.

5.0 out of 5 starsI am a Mainer!

Excellent!!! I love to see energetic people create a rebirth in some of these lost communities. I am from northern Maine, the Moosehead Lake Region and they rely on tourism, fishing, hunting, etc and lumber harvesting, farming. Mt. Kineo has developed a fair amount of ski activity but the small towns are disappearing; I.e. Rockwood, Greenville etc. I was born in Guilford ME and most of my parents friends have moved to Florida, Calif or New England states such as Connecticut.

Loud annoying background music, and no real info. Lots of superfluous fluff.
