Having worked with this land trust on an ambitious effort to protect over 600 acres of prime farmland, headwaters of the LaPlatte River, and habitat for the endangered Indiana bat, I can say that this nonprofit is full of spunk, hardworking volunteers and great ideas. They are dedicated not only to protecting land, but also connecting people to the land, and encouraging the integration of sustainable and local businesses and farms into community life. From their annual Turkey Trot to their wildflower walks, they really engage the citizens of Hinesburg with their natural surroundings.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
rallying their community behind land protection efforts, great and small.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the dedication and perseverance of their all-volunteer board!
