Rural Vermont’s mission is to lead the resurgence of community-scale agriculture through education, advocacy, and organizing in support of Vermonters living in deep connection to one another and to the land that nourishes us all.


Update on 2018 Legislative Session

We are almost mid-way through the 2018 legislative session, and ​Rural Vermont is working hard to monitor and advocate on a group of bills that we have broken into three categories: Those that have the potential to help our constituents; those that have the potential to harm our constituents and those that bear keeping a close eye on to see if they move into either of the first two categories. You can read about these bills and their status HERE.

Rural Vermont’s 2018 Policy Overview & Priorities

There are countless bills under consideration during the 2018 legislative session that could have impact on Rural Vermont’s constituency. We are keeping an eye on many of them — policy overview 1.23.18 (please be advised this is a working document). We encourage you to sign up to receive our emails and follow us on social media to receive the most timely and direct updates and action alerts.

We did it! Now let’s do it again!

Thank you, thank you to every one of the 154 people who helped us raise the first $15,000 of our year-end fundraising campaign. One incredibly generous donor is stepping up to match every single one of these dollars, which means $30,000 total !
But there’s more! Another generous donor wants to see this momentum continue through the end of the year, so he will be matching the next $10,000 we raise!
So if you haven’t made your year-end contribution yet, there is still time to double your donation and your impact. Feed the fire today and help Rural Vermont start the new year strong.

Please donate to Rural Vermont today.

Please donate now and help us feed the fire today and start the new year strong! Give here.
