Brush Brook Community Farm

Huntington, VT

Brushbrook Community Farm

"The mission of Brush Brook Community Farm—to extend reparations to the more-than-human world—is most simply a practice of radical localism, and can be understood as a journey of homecoming, returning bit by bit to the good work of caring for one another and for the home place that sustains us."

"At Brush Brook Community Farm, we work in service of this possibility of "mutually sustaining relationships between resident humans and their home places." That a farm, as we commonly use the word, provides sustenance for the human community is assumed."

"I nominated Brush Brook Community Farm in Huntington VT because I believe they fit right into Hallam’s social mission. They exist to educate the community on sustainable agricultural practices and offer all of their products as a gift to whoever is in need. So all of the food grown there is gifted during weekly distributions, typically in the form of a quart of soup and loaf of bread however they offer whole veggies too. I personally have been volunteering there since this summer and have to come to appreciate everything they are doing."
