More Vermonters are looking closely at sustainability and environmental responsibility. This year the
Vermont Historical Society's Annual Meeting and Conference examines Colleges, Communes, and Co-
ops. In the 1970s, communes nurtured experimentation and imported newcomers, colleges fostered
intellectual change, and co-ops brought like-minded food producers and consumers together—giving
rise to the underpinnings of today’s organic farming culture in Vermont.
Reservations are requested by September 13.
The registration fee is $25 for Vermont Historical Society members and students; $30 for non-
members. The fee covers daylong programs and lunch. Please contact Diane Campbell at (802) 479-
8503 to register or go online: www.vermonthistory.org/annual-meeting.
