Who we are
45 people strong, we are united by our love of Vermont and the land. Some people bring decades of expertise in conservation, forestry, or ecology. Others bring new perspectives from farming, finance, or community engagement. We are many things—parents and grandparents, maple sugarers, artists, hikers, farmers, and more—and we value what makes each person unique.
Life at the Vermont Land Trust
Whether your job is on the land or in the office, every person is united by a common purpose: to strengthen ties between land and lives. The work isn’t always easy, but it’s always rewarding. It requires going the extra mile, regularly collaborating across teams, and pushing the bounds of what’s possible. Day-to-day many of us are in the field or working from remote locations, while a handful can be found at the central office.
A Culture Built on Trust
Grow trust every day. This intention drives our practices, whether we’re working with landowners, our federal and state partners, or one another. Curiosity and relationship are at the root of this practice. We take time to listen, check assumptions, and understand others’ points of view. No one entity, landowner, or community can achieve success on our own. Understanding this system and working within a web of partnership helps us deliver results.
