A program of the Center for an Agricultural Economy

For the Community

Our programming supports our mission to bring together individuals and communities to develop and invigorate a locally-based food system in greater Hardwick and Vermont.

Hardwick Community Garden:

Our Community Gardens are located at Atkins Field, on Granite Street in Hardwick. These community raised beds are available to all, with a specific partnership with the Hardwick Food Pantry and Local Schools.


The Center for an Agricultural Economy will give tours of the VFVC and can help to arrange larger tours and learning visits for our local food system!

Food Access Program:

Bridging the gap between healthy local food and Vermonters, by partnering with our community.

Atkins Field:

Near the center of town, Atkins Field on Granite Street is home to the Hardwick Community Garden, Farmers’ Market, Springfest and other community events throughout the year.
