Pine Island Community Farm Public Tour

August 28, 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Come visit a vital community resource. Learn about a collaborative farm and community hub for New Americans in the greater Burlington area.

Pine Island Community Farm in Colchester is a place where New Americans (former refugees) can raise culturally significant foods and connect with the land. The farm is being sustainably managed and has a vibrant volunteer program. Waste products, such as Christmas trees, are recycled as food for farm animals.

Many of the people who come here as refugees have deep agricultural roots. Pine Island provides a place where people can access animals, open pastures, and fertile soil. It offers land to produce food that can otherwise be difficult or expensive to obtain. It gives people an opportunity to build on their agricultural past and experience a Vermont that feels more like home.
