Mount Washington Valley Eaters & Growers


Our story so far:

Mount Washington Valley Eaters and Growers formed around the shared goals of strengthening our regional food system, and promoting local farms and the many benefits of growing and buying local.

Facebook provides a terrific platform for sharing our stories and having dialogue about the issues we’re here to help resolve – check our page out here!

While our work tends to be cyclical because of the nature of the farming season, we continue to stay the course. In addition to USVLT’s  Jesse Wright, the core group who has been regularly meeting and moving things along currently includes Tom Earle (Earle Family Farm), Joanne Ducas (Mountain Heartbeet), Hank and Heather Letarte (White Gates Farm), Sandy Brocaar (MiVida Gardens and North Country Farmers Co-op), Paul Swegel and Katie Doyle Smith (Pork Hill Farm), Hannah Fleischmann (School Garden Coordinator in Tamworth), Olivia Saunders (UNHCE), and Janet Wilkinson (Conway Giving Garden). Many generous individuals and groups have supported our early efforts (thank you!), and we welcome Eaters and Growers alike to join us.

As a final note: There are and have been initiatives led by similarly-minded folks such as Slow Food Chapters, Cooperative Extension, Farm Bureau, Small and Beginning Farmers, the MWV Green Team / Sustainability Network, NOFA/MOFGA, and all the local farmer markets. Our intent is to be entirely complementary to and supportive of other such efforts – we know how lucky we are to have other people and groups who really get it, and who really care!

Special thanks to Natalie Beittel, who created our beautiful logo!
