Vermont Natural Resources Council is a nonprofit environmental organization founded in 1963 to protect Vermont's natural resources and environment through research, education, and advocacy.


The 2005 Vermont Field Studies class at UVM has chosen to represent the choices we make as Vermonters in managing our house, located in our very own “Eco-Hood”. As you tour our house, you can make decisions about different lifestyles or choices, and see what the differences are, both in market price (what you pay in dollars) and in real cost (which incorporates the effects of human choices on natural, social, and human capital).
