View this email in your browser
Though the pandemic has caused us to temporarily close the Bristol office of Vermont Family Forests, our work continues full steam. We're working with forest landowners to create and update their forest conservation plans, collaborating in efforts to encourage wild forest conservation in Vermont, and continuing restoration of the buildings on VFF's Anderson lands. We're also continuing our EATING THE FOREST WITH ALI video series--you'll find the latest two installments below.

Enjoy, be well, and may the Forest be with you!
SOLID FOOTING--AND A RIDE--FOR WELLS FARM BARN
 
We try to do as much of the restoration of the buildings on the Anderson lands ourselves as we can, but some projects require outside expertise. Take a look at some fun footage, as the Cidery barn is lifted onto its new foundation at VFF's Anderson Wells Farm.
