Guest column Healthier lifestyles: A healthy Main Street

by Catherine Wilson, On Purpose WellBeing Center

On Purpose WellBeing Center has joined with other businesses to offer the Edible Main street boxes.  The Gorham Grown Initiative 2020 decided to move forward with their project and adhere to public safety measures this year.

The Girl Scout Troop 2300 in Gorham showed up early on a Saturday morning to set the boxes, and Meghan Irish planted the “Roasted Herb Garden” for On Purpose WellBeing Center to take care of for the summer.  My team and I will make sure the Thyme, Rosemary, Cilantro and other herbs, along with what I have planted — green beans and lettuce — will be watered and loved, so that anyone can stop by and take some home!  

It’s so fun to know that after a great workout my clients and students can leave with a hearty salad for dinner! Brin and Meghan Irish were so careful to be sure these seedlings made it to a healthy start in their garage. They said, “Due to the COVID19, these seedlings stayed a little longer with us…and boy are they strong and healthy!”  

On Purpose is not the only business in Gorham that will have the Edible Main Street boxes, but if you start here, you will make your way right into the heart of Gorham!  

These boxes are such a wonderful idea and support healthy eating in our community. This is one of the reasons I decided to open my business in Gorham — Gorham cares!
