Alnapek Kkihkan (The People's Garden)

Alnapek Kkihkan (the People's Garden) serves the Penobscot people and surrounding community by revitalizing traditional values of sharing, responsibility, and community through gardening and growing food. The program provides a variety of healthy foods to community members, and is tended by both experienced and just-learning volunteer community gardeners, who are invited to enjoy the food and encouraged to give back by either watering or weeding at the garden, contributing to the community compost, or being involved in specific community garden events. It is a place where seeds, seedlings, and plants are shared. Alnapek Kkihkan grows community alongside vegetables and herbs.
