We are more than halfway through a successful gleaning season! Each week volunteers have been donating their time and getting their hands dirty to feed their local community. Ben and Jerry’s Burlington Scoop Shop, Bellcate School, Winooski Youth, University of Vermont, Keurig Green Mountain, Volunteers for Peace, and Peoples United Bank have all been dedicated volunteer groups. We have also hosted a number of individual volunteers of all ages, from all over Vermont.
The Intervale Food Hub, a social enterprise of Burlington-based nonprofit Intervale Center, is now an approved vendor to UVM Dining at the University of Vermont. The Intervale Food Hub is known for its subscription baskets containing local products including vegetables, eggs, meat, yogurt, and cheese from 40 Vermont producers. Several of the producers are located in Burlington’s Intervale, less than two miles from the UVM campus.
Joe Adler has made a Summervale music line-up that is one for the books. Artists from all over New England have come to perform at the Intervale Center this summer and have loved the unique Summervale experience. The next three and final Summervale events will be some of the most memorable with performances from local music legend, Ray Vega, as well as local band, Smooth Antics.
Every Thursday, the Intervale Center lawn is filled with hundreds of smiling faces, swaying to the music of a new artist. People leave with full stomachs and memories overflowing with new experiences. Summervale would not be where it is today if not for the amazing supporters and sponsors that give their talent, food, and time to make it happen! It has become a Burlington summer staple with the help of two local music gurus: Joe Adler, general manager for Radio Bean, is thanked every Summervale for putting his hard work into finding these up-and-coming artists. Mike Trombley, owner of Advance Music Center, donates one of his limited sound systems each week in order to make the music travel all throughout Summervale.
Summervale is almost here! The first Summervale will be held on July 2nd at 5:30 at the Intervale Center. We have some amazing new vendors joining us this summer: The Hindquarter and Juniper at Hotel VT!
After a long and cold winter, Summervale is finally right around the corner with new food, new music, new activities… you name it! Everyone who attends Summervale gets a feel of community, family, and maybe a new recipe or two. For the past 5+ years, Summervale has become a staple for local Vermonters. Every Thursday, people have the opportunity to enjoy food from local vendors and music by local Vermont artists. Read more
