The Point has been locally grown, cultivated and consumed right here in Vermont for the last 33 years and counting. Which is why The Point is lending its name to the localvore movement in Vermont as “The Point’s Sustainable Table,” to help highlight and support local agriculture.
Food is a common language, a basic human need, and a right. The Point’s Sustainable Table initiative envisions a community in which all people can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it and good for the planet.
