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!
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!
