The Good Life Center


The Good Life Center at Forest Farm in Brooksville, Maine, is the historic final homestead of Helen and Scott Nearing, who were prominent proponents of simple and sustainable living, leaders of the Back to the Land movement, and powerful social activists. Helen and Scott Nearing wrote the now famous book “The Good Life”. Visitors are welcome to tour the organic gardens, explore the hand-built yurts and stone house, and learn strategies for simple and sustainable living from the Resident Stewards.
