What We Do

We protect the land that makes Vermont special – farms, forests, parks, trails, ponds and more. We want to make sure that people today and future generations are able to enjoy the land and Vermont’s rural traditions like those who came before us. Learn more.

 

Conserve Your Land

One way we can protect Vermont’s working landscape is to conserve land. This land includes productive farmland; forests rich with timber and wildlife habitat; and town forests and trails that further our connection to nature and neighbors. We work with both private landowners and communities to protect that land that makes Vermont special. Learn more.

Our Farmland Access Program

Farmland is expensive. This makes it hard for farms to get started or expand. We created the Farmland Access Program to help entrepreneurial farmers find affordable land of their own. Learn more.
