Vital Communities is happy to announce the addition of two new employees to our Valley Food & Farm program!

Welcome to Beth Roy, our new Farm to School Coordinator! Beth has been working in environmental and place-based education for 15 years, most recently at the Nature Museum at Grafton and the Vermont Institute of Natural Science. We are thrilled to have her on the Valley Food & Farm team. You can reach her at or (802) 291-9100 x105.


We also offer a belated welcome to Nancy LaRowe, who joined our team earlier this year as Valley Food & Farm Coordinator. Many of you know Nancy from Hogwash Farm, her pastured meat farm in Norwich. She coordinates our services for beginning farmers and many other things, so please call or email her if you are a new farmer and would like assistance with your farm plans. You can reach her at, or (802) 291-9100 x106.
