The Garden at 485 Elm
People growing together:
a collaborative community garden in Montpelier, Vermont

Gratitude: UVM TREKkies transform the garden!

Volunteers worked here in the garden all day. It was part of their three-day, peer-led orientation adventures for incoming first-year students at University of Vermont.

Many hands accomplished needful projects that we hadn’t tackled amid the ongoing demands of garden maintenance. Students gleaned fresh food, which we brought to a free community lunch to feed our neighbors at a free community lunch.

These volunteers’ hard work will benefit garden health and productivity this season and in seasons yet to come.
