economic and social opportunity while protecting natural resources.
The Big Picture
As people disconnect from active lifestyles, nutritious food,
and the natural world, they become less healthy. Community fabric becomes
frayed. Food producers struggle financially while people nearby consume highly
processed food products with minimal nutritional value manufactured in distant
At the Intervale, we are trying to reverse this cycle. Reconnecting
people, food and nature helps to preserve natural resources and create a
roadmap to a sustainable future.
With support from grants, individual donors and revenues from Intervale
enterprises, the Intervale delivers on the following goals: to grow viable
farms, preserve productive agricultural land, increase access to local, organic
food, compost and other soil amendments, and protect water quality through
manure management technology and stream bank restoration.
