Brookmead Winter Trails
UVLT grooms a portion of the trails at Brookmead as well as trails through the fields for nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Grooming these trails has been made possible by generous donors and trail users. Skiing and snowshoeing only are allowed on the trails through the fields. The main trails are open to winter fat biking, walking, trail running, skiing, and snowshoeing. Groomed trails at Brookmead connect to groomed trails at Parcel 5.
Brookmead Food Pantry Garden
The Brookmead Food Pantry Garden was started in the summer of 2019 at Brookmead Conservation Area in Norwich, VT. The garden was created so that UVLT could use the land to serve the whole community by growing food that would be donated to Willing Hands and distributed to our neighbors in need. By planting the garden at Brookmead UVLT wanted to continue our mission of bringing people together to conserve land that makes our communities more resilient, healthy, and sustainable for all.
In light of the skyrocketing need for food assistance in our Valley due to Covid-19, UVLT has committed to using as much land as possible to grow food for those in need. We are confident that we are a resilient community that can come together to create local solutions and help each other in times of need.
This is an enormous leap in production for UVLT staff but we are ready to take on the challenge and contribute what we can, using our land to benefit those who need it most.
