Our Purpose

GFGM: empowering participants with the practical skills of food self-reliance and community resilience through hands-on activities in: community gardening, healthy seasonal cooking, affordable nutrition, family herbalism, food preservation & leadership development. GFGM is based at two affordable housing complexes in Barre City, Vermont. In 2018 we have expanded our reach from Green Acres and Highgate family housing complexes in Barre to offering programs at two elderly and disabled housing sites thanks to a collaboration with Barre Housing Authority.
