Grant supports community forum on environment and community resilience
With support from the CDF Cooperative Education Fund, citizens of the northern counties of Vermont and New Hampshire can participate in a free webinar series about the interplay of the environment, social justice and health in building resilient communities. Soil Health and Community Resilience: Stories from the North will be available online starting on February 10. The event is hosted by the Vermont Healthy Soils Coalition, the Littleton Food Co-op, and over 30 local community organizations and businesses.
“In the spirit of cooperation, this series will help to build bridges between the Vermont and New Hampshire counties bordering the mighty Connecticut River that are needed to increase collaboration, share stories, and cultivate practical skills from the talents of local folks. Co-ops like us are driven to build these bridges, which have the power to create a stronger, more resilient, sustainable region for all as we step into our future together,” said Becky Colpitts, Community Outreach Coordinator for the Littleton Food Co-op and Series Co-Organizer.
The program will be on Feb. 10 and 24, Mar. 10 and 24, Apr. 7 and 21 at 6:30 - 8:00 pm Eastern.
