Welcome to the Historic Homestead
of Scott & Helen Nearing
The mission of the Good Life Center is to perpetuate the legacy of Helen and Scott Nearing. The Good Life Center, through its programming and preservation of the historic Forest Farm homestead, advocates for simple and sustainable living skills, social and economic justice, organic gardening and the non-exploitation of animals.The Good Life Center is now closed, but guests are welcome to enjoy the property on their own or with the self-guided tour available in the small kiosk. Please call Warren Berkowitz at (207)374-5386 for any additional information or requests.
The Good Life Center seeks applications for the 2023 Resident Stewards. For more information, please refer to the Residency page.
We acknowledge that the Good Life Center exists in the place we now call Harborside, Maine, which is home to the sovereign Wabanaki people. We honor and are grateful for the ancestral and contemporary Wabanaki peoples indigenous to this land in the Dawnland.
