It’s Harvest Season on The Farm at VYCC
October 31, 2019 |
As the season moves into fall, harvesting veggies becomes a high priority on the Farm at VYCC. During the months of September and October, 18 young adults harvested over 22,000 pounds of vegetables!
And they didn’t stop there. With the help of volunteers, these dedicated young adults also packed and distributed over 2,300 shares to Health Care Share families, totaling over $75,000 worth of food.
THE LEARNING NEVER STOPS AT VYCC
Between growing, harvesting and distributing food for Vermonters in need, the farm team visited other farms to learn sustainable agriculture practices from experts in the field.
Here is John Heyden, owner of The Farm Between, explaining how he uses regenerative and ecological principles to promote biodiversity and pollinator habitat.
SEE YOU LATER!
Now that veggies are out of the ground, and fields are put to bed, we’re sad to say goodbye to these incredible young people.
They learned, they grew, and they fed over 400 Vermont families from July to November. We’re excited to see what they will accomplish next!
