10 Ways to Build a Better World with Bread and Beer

More than a century ago, central Maine was part of New England’s breadbasket, and the town of Skowhegan was one of the hubs. Today, Skowhegan is experiencing an agricultural renaissance, with a new generation of thought leaders, farmers and food producers leading the charge. Many people are playing instrumental roles in this movement, including Amber Lambke.  Lambke will discuss how revitalizing Maine’s grain economy has provided a good focus for economic and community development at the grassroots level in Skowhegan, at this time in history. She will outline how local grains in our bread and beer presents new opportunities for Maine.

Amber Lambke is president of Maine Grains, Inc., carried by specialty food stores and used by bakeries and restaurants throughout the Northeast. She is also the founding director of the Maine Grain Alliance. A driving force behind Maine’s sustainable foods movement, Amber has worked with local business leaders and community members to successfully bring the cultivation and processing of grains back to Skowhegan, Maine. Her efforts through the Maine Grain Alliance have generated a broader understanding and appreciation of the nutritional and economic value of heritage grains and oats, as well as their exceptional flavor. The alliance’s Kneading Conference, co-founded by Amber, now draws thousands of attendees from throughout North America each year and has spawned similar conferences across the country.
