Do you care about local food, climate change, water quality, sustainability, or food access and want to bring your involvement in your community to the next level? Here are some fun ideas of how you can get involved with the Intervale Center!

  • Celebrate with us! 2018 is the Intervale Center’s 30th anniversary! Help us celebrate our birthday with your birthday. It’s easy to start your own fundraiser for the Intervale Center and our programs on Facebook and invite your friends and family to support an organization and place that you love. Just go to www.facebook.com/fundraisers, click “Raise Money”, find “Intervale Center” and share with your friends!

  • One easy way to support the farms that feed us, land that nourishes us and community that sustains us is to use Amazon Smile. Just choose the Intervale Center as your non-profit of choice and remember to use smile.amazon.com when you shop. We will automatically receive 0.5% of your purchases! Get started here: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/03-0329656

  • Volunteer and stay tuned for more opportunities working with different programs! In March, you could help us propagate new trees and shrubs in our warm greenhouse. In July, you can volunteer at Summervale or harvest vegetables with our Gleaning & Food Rescue program. Make sure you’re on our volunteer listserv (sign up here) to learn about opportunities as they come available, and you can always check Wildfire to see what’s coming up. If you have a group of coworkers, friends or family that want to volunteer together, contact us and we’ll set up a fun volunteer experience for you.

  • Sign up to receive our monthly e-newsletter! We typically send 1-2 emails per month and focus on events, program updates and news from Vermont’s food and farming community. Sign up at the bottom of our homepage!

  • Support our programs! Many community members like you lend a hand by becoming monthly supporters. A recurring donation of just $5 per month allows us to plant 30 new native trees or shrubs, provide 60 pounds of fresh vegetables to a low-income household, or maintain Intervale trails and land for hundreds of visitors to enjoy. Your support can really make a difference.

  •  Come to our events - check out our calendar for upcoming community events, panel discussions, nature walks, parties and more.

  • Enjoy a free tour of the Intervale Center (the last Friday of every month from March – October at 10 AM) to learn more about our impact on farms, land and communities in Vermont. RSVP to Carolyn@intervale.org
