The Health Care Share project has become a vital community resource to hundreds of Vermont families. One Health Care Share Member explained that “without the Health Care Share we’d be in a world of hurt.” With funding from International Paper Foundation, VYCC was able to distribute over 74,000 pounds of farm-fresh produce to families who need it most.

The watershed program has been hard at work in the 2018 field season! Six crews (and counting) have implemented a variety of projects across the State, aimed at improving water quality and ecosystem health. Clean water doesn’t just mean we can stay hydrated during these hot months, it means that diverse aquatic ecosystems are able to thrive, which provides benefits to the broader landscape, our economy, and the health of our Vermont communities.so we hope you will help us celebrate the great work getting done this summer.

The Food and Farm Program is now offering a public community-supported agriculture (CSA) program that supports the Health Care Share, the community members it feeds, and the Vermont youth it employs. The share costs $620 and includes 15-weeks of organic produce, $100 in VYCC Farm Bucks that can be used at our Richmond Farm Stand, and $100 to sponsor a Health Care Share that will support a family in need.
