THE VERMONT STATE HOUSE FOOD GARDEN

Glenn & Joanne with the State House harvestCheck out THE VERMONT STATE HOUSE FOOD GARDEN BLOG

Since Vermont is a state of so many “firsts,” it should also be said that with this project, Vermont would likely become the first state in the nation to have a publicly-oriented food garden on its statehouse lawn.

It is our hope that the State House food garden will inspire similarly organized public/private gardens on portions of county courthouse lawns, in public parks, and on town greens around our state, providing vital food assistance to those in need.
