Pine Island Farm aims to be the neighborhood farm for a diverse community of primarily New American users in the Greater Burlington area. It will intentionally evolve to meet the demand for locally produced and culturally significant foods as well as providing a locale where people can deepen their relationships with the land, nurture cultural values and traditions, and broaden their community connections. Pine Island Farm was a project initiated in partnership between the Association of Africans Living in Vermont (AALV), the Vermont Land Trust (VLT) and local, resettled refugee farmers.
Member Work opportunities include mowing, gardening, building and equipment maintenance, monthly work days, artwork, graphic design, and website design.
