“The easiest way to grow is to surround yourself with people smarter than you are.”

 

Jos Thalheimer

Things changed when I moved to Maine in the summer of 2012. I previously had a full life in New York City, where I founded and managed a variety of philanthropic projects, and earned a Masters Degree from NYU in Social Work, Public Administration, and Non-Profit Management. And yet, I knew I needed a more sustainable, self-sufficient life, framed by learning and giving back.  

In Maine, my passion for good food, farmer’s markets, cooking, and organic farming took hold, and I began to develop an early vision for Riverweb: a land-based existence that we could build with our hands and share with our community. With a humbling scarcity of farming knowledge, I explored a variety of possibilities for how to grow food and manage land—through first-hand experience, rigorous research, and with the guidance of a talented team. This quest for understanding helped define Riverweb’s practical and philosophical mission:   A place dedicated to exploring the natural world through sustainable food production and thoughtful land use.   

Every day I am here I fall even more in love with Riverweb. Every time I look at the plans I am inspired by what this place will become. I know that Riverweb’s journey is just beginning and it will unfold over decades. I am slowly and deliberately uncovering an understanding of the land and learning how to create a set of interdependent resilient systems that meet a set of ambitious goals within our steadfast values.
