Heather Burt, General Manager of Rising Tide Co-op

Rising Tide Co-op received financing from the Genesis Fund to purchase and renovate our current building in Damariscotta.

That investment in our organization has rippled out into our community many times over in the years since.

We are now a local food hub that supports over 300 Maine farmers and producers, employs over 50 staff, and is an active community partner.

It is our belief that the money we now invest in Genesis supports projects that will also have a cumulative positive impact on the well-being and health of Maine communities and our neighbors.
