The Windham Conservation District will be offering two fun opportunities to learn about conservation and the district this week. Thanks to a partnership with the Boyd Family Farm in Wilmington and funding from the Vermont Community Foundation, we’ll be offering free ice cream Tuesday, August 2 from 7:30 to 8:30 PM. For more information, please visit: Blueberry Festival

We’ll also have a table at this Saturday’s CRC Riverfest in Brattleboro. Please come out and join us to learn about river dynamics, good riparian stewardship practices and how you can help. We’ll have the stream table set up to provide a hands-on experience for attendees. For more information, please visit: CRC Riverfest

Did you miss the Congressional Candidate Forum on Food & Agriculture earlier this month? You can view the recording online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jERXF8YwQH8

More information about the event is below:

Building a thriving, resilient food and farming system in Vermont is critical for the health of the land, our communities, and for ensuring a secure food supply in the face of climate change and other disruptions. 

Join us for a forum with Vermont’s congressional candidates to hear their vision and priorities for the future of Vermont food and agriculture. During the forum, you will have the opportunity to hear from multiple candidates as they respond to questions submitted by Vermonters across the state. 

NOFA-VT co-hosted this event along with 350VT, Addison County Relocalization Network (ACORN), Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE), Healthy Roots Collaborative, Rural Vermont, Vermont Farm to Plate Network, Vermont Grass Farmers Association (VGFA), Vital Communities, and Windham County Natural Resources Conservation District.

Wake boat Regulation Petition:

A group of concerned citizens has initiated an effort to encourage the Vermont State Government to adopt regulations around the use of wake boats on Vermont’s lakes and ponds. This organization has drafted a petition that members of the public can add their names to if they so choose. To access the petition, please visit: https://gmail.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=dd9a64d8c2bfd298d1d966edd&id=e62526fb5a&e=c85d68404f
