The Vermont Garden Network educates, supports and connects gardeners. We believe in the power of people growing food to strengthen food security, promote food justice and build community, and we want every Vermonter to have access to the space and resources they need to be successful in growing some of their own.

  • Every child needs access to healthy food, to know where food comes from, and to learn basic food preparation skills they will use their whole lives.
  • Garden leaders and educators need support to provide essential skills for people to be active participants in the food system – to be producers, not just consumers.
  • Neglected land needs to be transformed into productive space providing a fresh, affordable and equitable source of fruits and vegetables. 

Established in 2001, VGN has helped start and sustain hundreds of gardens all over Vermont and has connected thousands of people to fresh, healthy food and sustainable food production practices. Learn more about our history here.
