    Community Harvest of Central Vermont (CHCV) is a group of Central Vermonters who are committed to bringing our community together through gleaning to recover surplus food produced on area farms to feed those with limited access to healthy, fresh local food, and in the process help the community to gain a greater awareness and appreciation of the local food system, healthy eating, and waste reduction.

    Allison Levin, Director of CHCV, takes you through the lens of gleaning to explore your relationship with food. This presentation will focus on gleaning in our area and will be followed by an open discussion of using/eating imperfect food, reducing wasted food, and knowing local farms better, among other topics.

    Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To attend this free workshop, sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, call us at 802-262-3202 or use this online form.

    All workshops are free and held in the Hunger Mountain Co-op community room unless otherwise noted, with access to a freight elevator upon request.

    Jon Steinman Book Tour: Grocery Story: The promise of food co-ops in the age of grocery giants

    Presented by Jon Steinman and New Society Publishers

    Jon Steinman will be making a stop at our Co-op as part of the book tour for Grocery Story: The promise of food co-ops in the age of grocery giants, published by New Society Publishers. Through penetrating analysis and inspiring stories and examples of American and Canadian food co-ops, Grocery Story makes a compelling case for the transformation of the grocery store aisles as the emerging frontier in the local and good food movements.

    The Vermont Land Trust saves the land that makes Vermont special. Since 1977, we have protected farmland and forestland from subdivision and development – knowing that once farms and forests are gone, they rarely come back. We want our children, grandchildren, and future generations to enjoy local food, farming, clean air and water, hiking, hunting, forestry, and sugaring.

    The Land Trust’s Pieter Van Loon, Director of Forest Stewardship, and Caitlin Cusack, Stewardship Forester, will teach you about invasive plants in Vermont, the harm they do, and their impact on our recreation and natural resource economy. They will share techniques for controlling invasives and show examples of successful management.

    Montpelier, Vermont may be the smallest state capital in the country, but it arguably has one of the largest per-capita cultures of innovative thinkers and sound environmental policies in the U.S. However, to become the beacon of climate resilience and sustainability, we need a major boost. And that’s where Mayday, the call for help comes in. We need all hands on deck!

    The time is ripe to set a standard on the most local level, for livable, walkable cities, prepared to weather the storms of a warming planet.  We need a local Green New Deal energizing every neighborhood in Montpelier. Acting now, we could prepare for one of the worst threats of climate change, facing our small city - the increases  in precipitation and severities of storm events. Perhaps a Civilian Corps of Montpelier Neighbors could build a green infrastructure to mitigate floods and keep polluted water from reaching our rivers?

    What would a Green New Deal look like for Montpelier? Come explore that idea with Moderator Elizabeth Courtney, Dan Jones, the Sustainable Montpelier Coalition staff, John Snell, Sarah Hoffmeier and members of the Montpelier Tree Board
