Rooted in Vermont is a grassroots movement to increase consumer demand for local food. Rooted in Vermont is shifting the local food narrative on social media and in Vermont communities to be inclusive of the many ways Vermonters enjoy and acquire local food. Traditions like gardening, hunting, fishing, and foraging are as core to Vermont’s local food movement as purchasing local food from farmers, restaurants, schools, and stores. Grassroots marketing efforts targeted towards Vermonters not already committed to purchasing local food will aim to stimulate increased awareness, participation, and purchases in Vermont’s local food economy and help local food consumption become mainstream in the next 5-10 years.
Rooted in Vermont is a project of the Vermont Farm to Plate Network to help reach local food consumption, food literacy, and food access goals of Vermont’s 10-year food system plan (Farm to Plate Strategic Plan). The Farm to Plate Network is coordinated by the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, a non-profit organization based in Montpelier, Vermont whose mission is to nurture the sustainable development of Vermont’s economy.
The Rooted in Vermont Project Manager will be employed by the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund. They will manage the implementation of the Rooted in Vermont grassroots marketing plan by coordinating activities among and between all stakeholders involved in implementing the plan including, the Rooted in Vermont Task Force, Farm to Plate Consumer Education & Marketing Working Group, broader Farm to Plate Network, regional grassroots community organizing teams, and the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund.
