I love quotes that add meaning to my life. Here are a few to live by:

We can dramatically increase global food availability and environmental sustainability by using more of our crops to feed people directly and less to fatten livestock.
—Jonathan A. Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, U of MN

Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
—Michael Pollan

Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.
—Craig Claiborne

People who eat according to the rules of a traditional food culture are generally healthier than those of us eating a modern Western diet of processed food.
—Michael Pollan

The Intervale – An Unexpected Adventure

A canopy of trees enveloping a narrow dirt road offers an unexpected adventure- a road that branches off on either side every couple hundred feet lacking signage inspires curiosity.  One needs a reason for venturing down to these fertile grounds on the edge of the Winooski river.  These places have some mystery attached.  Burlington’s Intervale offers a multitude of game changing initiatives including community supported agriculture, large scale composting, farm incubators and this year, an online Summervale festival.  It is a model for food and farming organizations throughout the world.  It is working to foster a local food economy that is good for people and the planet.

Reclaiming the Land

 

Any fork will take you to a collection of stunning fields growing everything from flowers to vegetables to herbs in soil that has a rich legacy dating back to the early settlers.  Land that was once farmed by Native Americans a millennium ago is now farmed by new farmers and a few seasoned ones- all who share a passion for farming the land, learning the business of farming, and marketing their bounty to a range of growing markets.

An Incubator for Young Farmers

Each has its own story and this land which has provided an incubator for small farms to medium farms on leased land from the Intervale.  And for many farmers who started here, and later moved on re-settling on their own land in other communities and thrived, there is a sense of gratitude for their early beginnings.

Diggers Mirth Collective Farm

 

Diggers Mirth, collectively owned and operated, is one of the eight farms that have found a home here, and is a perfect example of the farms that lease the land from the Intervale.  Diggers Mirth name was derived from a British Agrarian Collective that operated in the mid 1600’s.  This farm produces and sells vegetables, herbs and honey to the Burlington area. This season, like many other farmers, they have creatively found ways to get their organic bounty to customers through on-line ordering and pick up sites.  (www.diggersmirth.com)

A Rich History

This 700 acres of bottomland within the city limits of Burlington has not always shared the same vitality that it has today. In 1985, Will Raap, founder of Gardeners Supply, was a major force in the restoration of the Intervale land bringing it back to its agricultural roots.  A millennium ago, Native Americans farmed here. Since the 1700’s, a long history of agriculture productivity has existed here. Dairy farming in early 1900, joined by pig farming in 1950, and  vast acres of corn, and other vegetables graced this land for decades.  For twenty-five years until the 1970’s, it was the site of a large municipal dump, bringing the area into decline.   It was Raap’s vision with the help of others who cared about the land, and restored it back to its original roots to create the Intervale as it exists today.  Since 1988, it has reclaimed 350 acres of historical agricultural land and created countless opportunities for farms to thrive.

Summervale Festival goes On-line

 

Summervale, a popular summer community food and music festival will continue once again this year with lively fun music on Thursdays starting July 9th  from 6:30-8pm.  Under a creative virtual format you can enjoy local musicians like Mr. Chris and Friends and Pete’s Posse,  live on the Intervale’s  Facebook and Instagram pages.  Although the Summervale experience will be virtual this year, you can still walk the trails and enjoy the natural areas throughout the season.

Returned To Its Roots

Intervale Farms like Diggers Mirth thrive on this fertile riverbed, but the threat of flooding with the new reality of climate change presents a serious issue for the farmers who are working here.  Yet despite challenges, it remains a vital place that has returned to its roots and is prospering. Farmers who work these fields respect its rich and diverse history as stewards of the land.  It is a place that collectively provides our communities with local bounty that is grown on rich soil with hard work and love, a place that allows us all to envision food systems that support vibrant and thriving communities with a commitment to the power of good food.
