MP has been a fan of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens (CMBG) in Boothbay for as long as she can remember. With over 295 acres of woodland and shorefront property, the lush grounds are made for people who adore plants, flowers and the Maine outdoors.

A friend recently invited us to Camp Ketcha, a non-profit in Scarborough that fosters environmental education, for their annual Fairy House Festival. The spacious campground is an ideal place for kids to roam and play. We brought along our own Fairy House Kit from from fairy house expert and writer Liza Gardner Walsh. The wooden kit contains everything a kid needs to build a house: feathers, sea glass, soft moss, and of course, glittery fairy dust! The wonderful staff at Camp Ketcha also had supplies on hand like Forsythia branches and pinecones. The CP kids were in fairy house heaven!

We missed the initial pomp and circumstance, which included opening remarks from Senator Susan Collins, Maine’s First Lady Karen Baldacci, a parade, ribbon cutting ceremony and the quick devouring of 500 cupcakes.
