In this report, we are offering a look at our 2021 program year. We were among the many who continued to adjust and pivot to the disruptions of the times we are living through. And still we want to
share just a bit about some of the practices we are researching, the knowledge we’ve gained, and a few of the ways we engage in this work. We hope you’ll let us know any time you’d like to know more about the work or ways to get involved.
This is my last Annual Report as the Center’s Director as I am preparing to retire from UVM as a full-time faculty member in June 2022. Whether you are reading this as a partner, a donor, a participating farmer or community member, I want to thank you for caring about our work.. Having been part of this robust and brilliant community that makes up Vermont’s farm and food sector
has been such a joy and an honor. I look forward to staying in touch and helping with projects and research. In the meantime, on behalf of the Center team, I invite you to stay in touch. Let us know what you need and how we can help. There are new and experienced staff and faculty here, and they’re devoted to farming that helps farmers, communities and the natural world of which we’re a part, to thrive.
