Join us this Thursday for the November Scramble

Join us this Thursday, November 19 at Nunyuns Bakery, on the corner of North St. & North Champlain St., at 8am for our monthly “Scramble”!

Our speaker this month is Sophia Danforth, who is helping lead a Parent and Community Advisory Group which was recently formed to support the work of the Family Room, a parent-child center in the Old North End ( In the face of recent budget and staff cuts, the center is reeling and families are missing services they depend on. Sophia is reaching out to partners in the community to let them know about the good work that the Family Room does and to get help in restoring staff and programming. The Advisory Group is also working to create a more sustainable resource center for families in the ONE.
Our monthly networking meetings are open to all interested members of the community and are always the third Thursday of each month.

The Day in the Dirt with Vt Community Garden Network was a great success!

The third annual Day in the Dirt on Saturday, May 9, 2015 was a tremendous success!

More than 160 volunteers gave local community and school gardens all over Burlington a spring boost and had a great time, too. Presented in partnership with Gardener’s Supply, Burlington Parks Recreation & Waterfront, UVM’s Department of Community Development & Applied Economics, Green Mountain Compost, the Intervale Center, and a host of local businesses, the event brings new life to sites that are essential to feeding our community.
