    623 Stone Cutters Way

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    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.

    Jon Ramsay, Director of the Farmland Access Program at Vermont Land Trust, will be joined by Elise and Kagen Dewey, of Littlewood Farm in Plainfield, VT. Acquiring affordable land is a huge obstacle for beginning farmers. Vermont Land Trust created the Farmland Access Program to help entrepreneurial farmers find affordable farms of their own. Learn about the program’s successes, including farms that sell to Hunger Mountain Co-op.

    Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District provides leadership, education, and services for residents and businesses in reducing and managing their solid waste in order to protect public health and the environment to the greatest extent feasible. CVSWMD is working to end waste for good. While achieving a zero waste district may seem ambitious, we believe that by setting goals high, we can and will find ways to reach them. It’s in the journey to zero waste that efficiencies are created, business is generated, jobs are created, and communities are bound together toward a common outcome. In recent years, we have watched with satisfaction as more and more solid waste entities finally get on board with Zero Waste initiatives and goals.

    CVSWMD’s Outreach Manager Cassandra Hemenway will show you some easy ways to get started composting and do it successfully, and will review other ways to keep your food scraps out of the trash. You’ll learn strategies for jump-starting an old pile, how to keep smells down, and animals out. She’ll talk to you about managing food scraps, why they break down, and how to use food scraps as a resource in your own yard. Everyone goes home with a starter kit.

CVSWMD is working to end waste for good. While achieving a zero waste district may seem ambitious, we believe that by setting goals high, we can and will find ways to reach them. It’s in the journey to zero waste that efficiencies are created, business is generated, jobs are created, and communities are bound together toward a common outcome. In recent years, we have watched with satisfaction as more and more solid waste entities finally get on board with Zero Waste initiatives and goals.

      CVSWMD’s Outreach Manager Cassandra Hemenway will show you some easy ways to get started composting and do it successfully, and will review other ways to keep your food scraps out of the trash. You’ll learn strategies for jump-starting an old pile, how to keep smells down, and animals out. She’ll talk to you about managing food scraps, why they break down, and how to use food scraps as a resource in your own yard. Everyone goes home with a starter kit.

      Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To sign up for this free workshop, email your name and contact info to info@hungermountain.coop

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

      Hunger Mountain Co-op allows community members to offer workshops that align with our mission of promoting nutritional awareness, local sustainability, and environmental responsibility. These workshops are offered for the voluntary participation, education, and enjoyment of our community.

      Are you ready to improve your recycling game? CVSWMD’s Outreach Manager, Cassandra Hemenway, will answer all of your recycling questions in this in-depth workshop. Come learn the overview of Vermont’s recycling laws, what goes in/what stays OUT of your recycling bin, and what “additional” recycling is and how to do it right and how to avoid “wish cycling.”

    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.
