Review for CHEWONKI FOUNDATION INC, Wiscasset, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Chewonki was one of the most formative experiences of my life. As a Maine Coast Semester student, I learned 80 birds by their calls and plumage, gathered eggs from the hens in the morning, read and discussed one of my favourite books of all time (the Beak of the Finch), ate 'close to the earth' and participated in building a respectful and loving community. My time at Chewonki shapes my decisions until this day, in my academic and career path, my consumption choices, and my feeling of connection to the natural world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open the Chewonki experience to more people from different backgrounds. Chewonki offers a fair amount financial aid, but for most participants the programs are necessarily quite expensive. $10 million would allow for many more accessible spaces.
