Pesticides & Herbicides: Farm Tour & Panel Discussion

Rural Vermont and The Farm Between will explore the use of pesticides and herbicides in Vermont.  John Hayden will provide a tour of The Farm Between and its goals and practices in relationship to pollinator and insect health; a panel will provide information and perspective on policy, research, practices, and responses (on and off farm) related to pesticide use; and there will be time for socializing as we enjoy food from the wood-fired NOFA pizza oven and snow-cone slushies made from The Farm Between's own simple syrups!  

Our goals are for folks to leave this event with more information about pesticides, policy related to pesticides, and what people and communities in Vermont - on and off the farm - are doing in response.

For planning purpose, please RSVP to Shelby at or here:

Location: 3727 Vermont Route 15 Jeffersonville, Vermont 05464

A panel discussion will lead off the evening with a shared dialogue on the future of Vermont’s working landscape that depends on equitable land access and successful transition of current operations. In an era of increasing real estate prices, challenges of development pressure, and marginalized farm viability, how can the working lands future we all envision for Vermont be realized? Farmers who will present are: Lila Bennett  from Tangletown Farm in West Glover; Corie Pierce from Bread & Butter Farm in Shelburne; and Graham Unangst-Rufenacht of Robinson Hill Beef in Calais/Plainfield.
