A matching grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities will help a consortium that includes the University of Vermont and three partners tell the stories of diverse Vermont farmers. The three-year project will select eight Vermont farmers from diverse geographic, gender, cultural, and racial backgrounds, different farming sectors, and varying ages, and invite them to document their stories through oral history. These stories will then be captured in comic books and multi-media digital stories that will form curriculum for Vermont middle schools. The project will help build community among project collaborators and for people who will better understand contemporary Vermont farmers.
