Vermont Housing & Conservation Board: A Conspiracy of Good Will

The Vermont Housing & Conservation Board recently released a short film featuring some first hand reports from VHCB beneficiaries from all across the state.  Interviews highlight farmers, homeowners, and leaders in Vermont’s nationally known network of non-profit affordable housing and land conservation organizations.  More features include:

  1. Interviews with the executive directors of VHCB, Preservation Trust of Vermont, Champlain Housing Trust, Windham & Windsor Housing Trust, The Nature Conservancy of Vermont;

  2. A community celebration at the recently conserved Barre town forest with 60 miles of recreational trails threading through abandoned stone quarries dating to the early days of the granite industry;

  3. A new food co-op constructed in downtown Brattleboro with affordable housing on the upper stories that recycles heat thrown off by the co-op refrigeration units to heat the apartments;

  4. Dairy farmer Guy Choiniere talks about the benefits of conserving farmland and his success working with the VHCB Farm & Forest Viability Program on a business plan for his operation;

  5. How the Montpelier Senior Center recovered after a fire to become the site of new apartments for seniors and persons with disabilities.
