We’re raising $1 million for the buildings, open spaces and trails of the Intervale Center. We’re 97% to our goal and need your help to reach the finish line - plus, the first $9,000 in donations will be matched by our generous business partners: Ben & Jerry's Foundation, National Life Group, Vermont Gas, Community Bank, Skinny Pancake and Mascoma Bank.
For 30 years, the Intervale Center has been leading the community food revolution from Burlington’s beloved Intervale while operating innovative programs & enterprises that are making our community food system stronger.
Now we are investing $1 million to make the Intervale Center – historic landmark, conservation area, agricultural hub, park and inspiration for people & communities worldwide – more beautiful, productive & accessible than ever. These investments will support a stronger agricultural economy, help us plant more trees to improve water quality & expand community access to this one-of-a kind community asset.
