Rural Vermont’s Community Conversation Tour will engage communities in dialogue about land use, livelihood, food, and the future of Vermont. At each of the Tour stops, Rural Vermont farmer-leaders and staff will present a vision for an agricultural economy in Vermont that delivers health and vitality to farmer, eater, soil, environment, and community alike.
Attendees will be invited to identify priorities, barriers, and pathways to systemic change at the individual, community, and statewide levels. Rural Vermont will use the results from all Tour events to shape its plan for moving Vermont towards this shared vision for a just agriculture and economy which serve all Vermonters and the land we inhabit.
Heartwood Grill's dishing up tacos at Hill Farmstead Brewery for the Festival of Farmhouse Ales. One of my favorite events of the year, FOFA features live music, great food, and a hand-picked selection of the world's best farmhouse ales and oak-aged variants.

Love to bake? Why not take your baking skills to the next level and create beautiful treats your family and friends will love? Day One: Cupcakes! Together, we’ll make carrot cake cupcakes and decorate them using a pastry bag + our own candied flowers. Day Two: Pie day! Each camper will make their own pie crust and use it to form an apple empanada + one fresh berry tart + a cinnamon roll. Day Three: Egg whites! Using whipped egg whites, we’ll make 3 classic treats: French macarons + Coconut macaroons + Meringue sculptures. Day Four: Crème Anglais! One recipe= 2 different desserts: Frozen custard (ice cream) + Crème brûlée. Day Five: Kids’ Choice! Our last day together will be spent working on a recipe of campers’ choice.

From the Montpelier ALIVE website:
"It's long been tradition to celebrate Independence Day on July 3rd in the Capital City each year. With the State House Lawn as a backdrop, festival-goers enjoy a day packed with family activities, the best parade in Vermont, more than 35 food and craft vendors, live music, dance performances, and don't forget the fireworks! Some say it's the best day of the year in Montpelier, Vermont."
