I’m always humbled by the support that I’m offered at nearly every turn, and by the many people, groups, and organizations that have helped to shape Climate Run from a dream to a reality over the past 4 years.
As training for the 2018 Climate Run Vermont 500 Resilience Ride & Run ramps up each week, I am again floored by the kindness and generosity of others — whether gifts of time, promises to share miles with me on the Long Trail, or much appreciated and needed financial, in-kind, or product support.
Please visit the sponsors, partners, and friends listed on the right, check out what they’re up to, and let them know how much you appreciate their good work.
In just the past few weeks, I’ve been honored to add the support of the great folks at:
Clean Yield Asset Management
Clean Yield is a Norwich, Vermont-based investment management firm that works with progressive investors to help build a ‘more just and environmentally sustainable economy’ and to help ‘advance corporate transparency and environmental and social sustainability.’ I’m excited to ride and run with the support of an organization helping others make far-reaching and significant change in Vermont and beyond.
Sweet Rowen Farmstead
If you’ve never had milk or cheese curds from Sweet Rowen in East Albany, VT, you’ve never tasted fresh local dairy the way it’s meant to be. Their mission, to “maintain a working landscape that provides families with fresh food, supports the local economy, and upholds the ecological integrity of the environment,” is at the very heart of building the roots of small-scale resilient communities.
At Ploughgate Creamery, Marisa Mauro has been making delicious cultured butter since establishing the Creamery at Bragg Farm in Fayston, VT in 2014. Perched on the eastern slopes of the Green Mountains below App Gap, Bragg Farm’s deep connection to the area’s dairy farming history is a natural complement to Ploughgate’s traditional approach to making cultured butter — a place where land, history, culture, and sustainable farming all come together in one exceptional product.
Fewer than a dozen miles from our home, Hillside Farm in East Albany, VT offers a range of local products — including pastured poultry, cider in season, and the yummy home-baked granola I fuel my each and every morning!
I am deeply grateful for the support of all these folks (and so many others!) — some of whom are planning to join me for at least part of my run north on the Long Trail in June.
Are you interested in helping to support the Climate Run mission or join me for a stretch of the LT? Let me know!
