Ready to Welcome | Last week, Rutland welcomed its first group of refugee families. As our community prepared for their arrival, we saw an outpouring of generosity. We heard from members about how we could work together to help ease the transition. We received concerns about what foods our new community members might be looking for. As we responded to these inquiries, we felt proud to be part of such a compassionate city.

Unusual Roots to Check out This Winter
We associate winter with a lack of fresh produce. But in Vermont, we know that’s just not the case. For ages, root vegetables have helped carry us through the cold. They store well, are full of useful nutrients we need right about now and they offer an earthy taste of our local farms. 
How to use our unusual root vegetables
The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) has attracted two international giants in the food and farming world to speak at the 35th annual winter conference on February 18-20 at University of Vermont. Dr. Fernando Funes Monzote of Cuba and Dr. Vandana Shiva of India will both bring a message of resilience, hope, and the power of people to make slow—but radical—change.
