The Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op, in collaboration with ACORN-VT, is excited to host Abe Collins of The Land Care Cooperative along with special guest Mercy Larson of Larson Farm & Creamery at Middlebury College’s Bicentennial Hall room 220 on Thursday, November 9th from 6-8 pm. This is a perfect opportunity for our community to come together to educate and organize ourselves as we begin a new chapter of cooperation with our farming neighbors to engage in the work of growing topsoil, increasing biodiversity, increasing the water-holding capacity of our soils, increasing groundwater recharge, practicing economic democracy, and beginning the long journey of effectively healing our watershed homes. Light snacks will be provided. The event is free and open to the public and registration is encouraged. We’d love to see you there!
