Summer Dog Days provide an opportunity to explore Vermont’s green pastures, where community gardens thrive in the state and many plants still bloom.
To give Vermonters and outsiders the opportunity to enjoy those views, the Vermontent Community Garden Network offers a series of “open houses” for those who want to visit outdoor workshops and cooking rooms or local gardens.
“These places feed our families and neighbors, and bring together classrooms, art exhibitions, joint food donation projects, and places to connect people in communities,” the network wrote in a news release.
“Open homes are family-friendly, free and open to everyone. Visit us, meet some neighbors and get inspired. ”
