South Hero Land Trust is working within Vermont's Food System at a very local level. In addition to conserving productive agricultural lands in the town of South Hero, South Hero Land Trust has developed a farm viability program that reaches further into the Islands community. The program sponsors educational activities at local and agricultural events, supports an agricultural and natural resource based curriculum in the South Hero school system, and connects consumers to local farms and agricultural businesses by publishing and distributing the Champlain Island Grown Guide to Agriculture. We have engaged in researching other means of promoting farm viability in the South Hero community, including the use of renewable energy resources on local farms and are currently looking at value-added dairy potential in the Champlain Islands. We have worked on a project to network our farmers, food processors, and food outlets through the newly formed Lake Champlain Islands Agriculture Network.
