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.
