Pine Island Community Farm Harvest Celebration

1029 Pine Island Rd
Colchester, VT

Join us at Pine Island Community Farm to learn how this innovative land conservation project is serving the local community in life-changing ways. Taste traditional food prepared by New Americans, learn about the farm’s riverside restoration and meet the farmers and gardeners that make up the Pine Island Farm community. 
 
Pine Island Community Farm is a place where New Americans (former refugees) have an opportunity to build on their agricultural past and prosper in their new home country. The farm is owned by the Vermont Land Trust and managed by the Intervale Center, along with a host of dedicated volunteers.
