What We Do

The Vermont Community Garden Network encourages, supports, and sustains a dynamic statewide network of community and school gardens.

With a talented and passionate staff of garden educators and community development experts, we:

  • TEACH youth and adults how to grow their own food and how to start and grow community and school gardens
  • TRAIN garden leaders
  • CONNECT local garden leaders to resources – and most importantly, to each other
  • ADVOCATE for community-based food systems that are fair and just
  • FUND garden projects

The Vermont Community Garden Network has funded nearly 300 garden projects over the past 12 years. See the list of past grants here.
