Grow Your Own Garden Program
Since 2020 Sustainable Woodstock has been distributing beginner Grow Your Own Garden Kits free of charge to individuals and families who want to produce their own food and increase long-term food security. Each free kit includes a complete set of quality gardening tools, seeds, seedlings and a beginner’s book on organic gardening. This program is open to families who would not otherwise be able to afford to garden.

Riparian Buffer Restoration & Garden Adaptation for Sustainable Woodstock Community Garden at Billings Farm
Sustainable Woodstock is working with several partners and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources to restore the riparian buffer where the northern edge of our community garden at Billings Farm borders Barnard Brook. A 30% design has been completed with a generous grant from Watersheds United Vermont. Funding is now being sought for a 100% design, which will lay the groundwork to restore the riverbank to a healthy buffer. This will entail losing roughly 25% from the north end of the garden, which will be offset by creating an equal-sized new addition to the south end of the garden, as shown in the following map.
