This started in spring2020 because there is a high level of interest in community and home gardening during COVID, and a broad array of community partners noticed and decided to organize their resources in coordination to support this desire across Brattleboro. The effort has been continued as supply chain problems, climate change, and global conflict have added additional strain on the global food system.
