Our mission is to strengthen community food systems. Founded in 1988, the Intervale Center manages a 360-acre campus of farmland, trails and open space along the Winooski River in Burlington, VT. Our influence radiates out from this beloved place as we work across Vermont to enhance farm viability and land sustainability, and more broadly as we serve as a model for food and farming organizations throughout the world.
The Intervale is open to the public 365 days a year. Our recreational trails wind along the Winooski River all the way to the Ethan Allen Homestead. They are perfect for biking, birding, walking, jogging, and skiing in the winter. See the website for a map and more information on groomed ski trails, bike paths, bird watching, and more!
