1. Carol Irons, an Abenaki Elder and member of the VT Council on Native American Affairs, has written down the oral history of Vermont, Vermont Abenakis: a Brief History of the People of the Dawnland, Vermont's First Human Inhabitants. All donations of $30 or more will receive one copy of this text. All proceeds up to $30 will go directly to the author.

2. The White River Conservation District is also fundraising for a seed mixture for farmers who are increasing rotational grazing with their cows. Our goal is to provide each of the 12 farmers in our "Transition-to-Better-Grazing Cohort" a 50lb bag of a pasture seed blend (white & red clover, rye, and chicory) to improve their pastures. Any portion of donations over $30 will go directly into the seed fund.

The White River NRCD is one of Vermont's 14 Natural Resources Conservation Districts. Conservation Districts work at the intersection of federal, state, and local government, promoting conservation planning and delivery of technical and financial resources to landowners, farmers, and land stewards. Go to www.whiterivernrcd.org to learn more about our services in Orange and Windsor counties, or go to www.vacd.org to find your local Conservation District!
