The Healthy Roots Collaborative (HRC) is a regional food systems program supporting the growers, producers, and consumers in Franklin and Grand Isle County. Healthy Roots provides programs and services for both consumers and producers in the Northwest Corner of Vermont that focus on food education, access and infrastructure. We envision a healthy Northwest Vermont with a community rooted in a strong agricultural economy with thriving farms, where all are connected to and nourished by local farms and food. The Healthy Roots Collaborative was founded by partner organizations who advise the HRC projects and programs. These partner organizations include Northwest Regional Planning Commission, Northwestern Medical Center, Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation, South Hero Land Trust, Northwest Family Foods, The Abbey Group and Franklin Grand Isle Workforce Investment Board.
