Frequently asked questions
How do I rent your barn?
We rent our Community Barn for private parties, weddings, meetings, and more! Click here for more information.
Can I drop off my compost at the Intervale Center?
Not anymore! We sold Intervale Compost Products to the Chittenden Solid Waste District in 2008 and it’s now Green Mountain Compost, based in Williston.
Can I drop off my yard waste, leaves, or wood products?
Yes, but not at the Intervale Center! Head to the McNeil Generating Station, operated by the Burlington Electric Department.
Can I bring my dog into the Intervale?
Most of our events, including Summervale, have a no-pet policy. However, we do welcome leashed dogs on our trails. Please keep dogs out of tilled farm fields!
Is the Intervale Center a farm?
No, but we lease our land to 10+ independent farms and work with farmers all the time!
What is the difference between the Intervale Center and the Intervale Community Farm?

Intervale Community Farm is one of the farms that rents land from the Intervale Center and operates as a separate cooperatively-owned consumer supported agriculture (CSA) farm.
What are the CSA options in the Intervale?
