The Center for Sustainable Agriculture advances sustainable food and farming systems in Vermont and beyond. We cultivate partnership, support innovative research and practices, and inform policy to benefit Vermont communities and the UVM campus.

Center staff and faculty research leading-edge practices and new approaches that help farmers and other food system stakeholders who are seeking profitability, incorporating environmentally regenerative practices, and addressing social and community-based food-related needs.  Like nearly everyone else, we are continuing to adapt our practices to support the health of our team and all who we work with.  If you have have questions about an upcoming appointment or event, please contact us in advance so we can let you know what to expect.
