Vermont Village Greens Report

The Vermont Village Greens Report details work completed in the first year of the Vermont Village Greens Initiative.  The Vermont Village Greens Initiative is an integrated project focused on restoring awareness and understanding of the cultural, economic, and historical value that village greens provide to our state. This project is a collaboration of many community, academic, and state-based programs, including: the Vermont Downtown Program under the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, the Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program under the Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation, and the Office of Experiential Learning within the University of Vermont’s (UVM) Rubenstein School of Environment & Natural Resources, and the Preservation Trust of Vermont. Work on this project began in the fall of 2013, when over 60 students in UVM classes began research on eight village greens across northern and central Vermont. Through this collaboration, students had a leading role in the development of many supporting projects.
