I have been looking to move back to Me after living in Ca for 8 years. I've found this thread very helpful, since we, too, are looking for a hippy-groovy friendly community to move back to. I was born in Saco, lived in Carrabassette Valley, Bangor area and Mount Desert Island, all before becoming a mom. Now in our search for a home, we are looking for a lot of the same things you all have mentioned. But, I was wondering, how hard is it to find a job, or make money doing something you like? Right now I am in childcare and in the craft-fair circuit... but have some experience with solar electric, alternative building, nutrition and some horticulture, and am open to many different things. What kind of eco-friendly, sustainable jobs are needed in Me right now?
