Upper Valley Energy Events

Green Real Estate Crash Course

Join the 49 Upper Valley Realtors who have already completed Vital Communities’ new Green Real Estate Crash Course. This dual-state, three-credit continuing education course helps Realtors understand the resources available to homeowners to make energy efficiency improvements and increase their comfort in their new homes. Realtors also learn everything they need to know to list and market a green home.

Contact Sarah to attend one of our upcoming course on Tuesday, November 19, 9 am-12:15 pm, hosted and sponsored by Service Credit Union in Lebanon.

Building a Resilient Farmer Network 

Upper Valley farmers are responding to climate change with a range of mitigation techniques, climate adaptation techniques, educational efforts, and political advocacy. With funding from Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE), Vital Communities will convene regular climate-focused farmer meetings to build a resilient farmer network. These farmer-directed gatherings will focus on peer-to-peer learning, visiting experts, on-farm models and demonstrations, and sharing resources that could improve farm and community resiliency. Contact Nancy LaRowe or Becka Warren, to learn more and join us at the kickoff celebration on October 21!
