City Market, 82 South Winooski Ave
As a follow-up to The Dish II: GMOs & You panel discussion, let’s head into the field to get an up close look at a few local farms. We’ll visit Dish panelist Heather Darby’s outdoor office, the UVM Research Farm in Alburgh where she tests new crop systems, including small grains, hops, and even crops for fuel. Then we’ll visit Blue Heron Farm in Grand Isle, where farmers Christine and Adam raise food they feel comfortable feeding to their children. We’ll meet their chickens and learn about their pastured, organic eggs.
Transportation is provided, leaving from City Market at 9:00am. Limited spaces are available and our farm tours fill up quickly. Reserve your space today for this unique opportunity.
