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.


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.

Feed the Fire!

Baby, it’s cold outside! Around here, we’re grateful for full woodsheds and for crackling fires. But most of all, we’re grateful for you. Together, we’re working towards a future where agriculture delivers greater health and vitality to our land and people, mitigates climate change, and improves upon a broad range of justice issues. Please donate now and help us feed the fire today and start the new year strong! Give here.

Annual Meeting & Celebration!

In the midst of torrential downpours on an evening in late October, 60+ hearty Rural Vermont members and friends gathered at the Tunbridge Town Hall for Rural Vermont’s Annual Meeting & Celebration. They shared a meal, thanked our outgoing Board members for their years of service and elected six new members to the Board of Directors, honored Migrant Justice with the Jack Starr award, bore witness to the debut of Rural Vermont’s “Digging In” video, and engaged in lively dialogue about everything from budgets to regional chapters to policy. We gave away some sweet raffle prizes, raised a good chunk of money, and spent some quality time with our folks! Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to be there!

We made it!

We’ve wrapped up our summer fundraising drive and want to extend a huge thanks to each and every one of the 219 supporters who pitched in. Now let’s dig in!
