FBC Support Your Local Brewer Fun Run

Join Full Barrel Cooperative for a fun run: Foam Brewers to Simple Roots via Burlington's stunning Island Line Trail. This will be a fun way to connect with fellow members, or to engage curious friends/prospective members - please come ask us about the FBC-endeavor and why we joined.

All paces welcome! Only run when something is chasing you? Please feel free to join by bike, or meet us at Simple Roots.

Three miles make your Ultra-training self roll your eyes a little bit? Drink a beer or two pre-run! If you plan to enjoy Foam beverages pre-run/ride, please plan to arrive no later than 6:30 p.m.

Runners will hit the path by 7pm. Our hope is to have everyone enjoying a cold SR brew and socializing about FBC [and other things] by 8pm.

Board of Directors Monthly Event Host: Kiersten Hallquist
(she will be wearing her Tie-Dyed FBC T, ready to run)

FBC apparel encouraged, if you own it!

Vermont Community Garden Network Day in the Dirt

  • TBD - our team will be assigned to a Burlington site (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join our team and be a part of the 7th Annual Day in the Dirt!

FROM THE VCGN WEBSITE:

On Saturday, April 27th, 2019, hundreds of volunteers will join forces to raise funds for VCGN and lend a hand in a shared garden at a school, neighborhood, housing facility, hospital, workplace, library or childcare center – working together to build a happier, healthier Vermont!

Day in the Dirt is a fun spring event where families, friends, employee teams and community members raise funds and spend a few hours helping prepare community gardens throughout Vermont for the season.  Participants come together to spread compost, build beds, repair fences or other activities to get these gardens ready for spring.  They help sustain this important work throughout the year by raising funds for VCGN’s programs, which include technical assistance, training & education, networking and resources for gardeners of all ages.

Interested in joining the fun? Want to join the Full Barrel Coop Team?

Did we mention there’s an after party at Switchback (12pm-2pm)?

Join at http://bit.ly/fullbarrelgardenteam

DOUBLE-BONUS: This volunteer time counts toward City Market member work!

There is a $10 registration fee; however, VCGN and Full Barrel do not want this to be a deterrent for anyone to join the fun. If you are unable to donate $10 to VCGN as part of this event registration, please feel free to use the discount code "FULLBARREL" at checkout to waive the registration fee.

Busy that day? It's ok! You can still donate to the team and support VCGN's amazing community initiatives!
