Crop to Cuisine: Vermont invests in big sustainable agriculture


Vermont officials are serving up a new plan to boost the state’s food and farm economy.

The Vermont Farm to Plate Investment Program was created in 2009. Its goal is to improve the state’s food system and make it easier to get healthy local food. The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund has spent the past 18 months developing a strategic 10-year plan which they say will meet those goals. They’ll release it to lawmakers today.
