• Welcome
Growing community together in Addison County.
ACORN’s mission is to cultivate connections that promote the production and use of healthy, local food in Addison County, Vermont.

What We Do

Project-based Approach

The Addison County Relocalization Network serves as a catalyst for developing local, sustainable and collaborative solutions to the challenges facing Addison County communities from the growing instability of our energy systems, environment and economy.
We are a part of the Vermont Farm to Plate Network. Farm to Plate is Vermont’s statewide initiative to improve access to healthy local food for all Vermonters.
