Happy spring! Your CCV Resource Coordinator has assembled some important resources for you:
Thinking of starting a garden?
Did you know that 3SquaresVT food benefits can be used to buy seeds and plants to grow fruits and vegetables?
You can use your monthly benefit to start your garden by purchasing fruit and vegetable seeds and starter plants at any retailer or farmers market that accepts EBT cards. Growing some of your own food is an inexpensive way to put fresh food on your table all summer long.

Global Social Problems Fill Series — Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Time: 3:30pm – 5:30pm
CCV Location: MontpelierGlobal Social Problems is excited to announce Netflix’s documentary City of Joy will be screened in March. This film follows the first class of students at a remarkable leadership center in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a region often referred to as "the worst place in the world to be a woman." These women have been through unspeakable violence spurred on by a 20 year war driven by colonialism and greed. In the film, they band together with the three founders of this center: Dr. Denis Mukwege (2016 Nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize), radical playwright and activist Eve Ensler ("The Vagina Monolgoues") and human rights activist, Christine Schuler-Deschryver, to find a way to create meaning in their lives even when all that was meaningful to them has long been stripped away. In this ultimately uplifting film, we witness the tremendous resilience as these women transform their devastation into powerful forms of leadership for their beloved country. We hope you will join us for what promises to be a harrowing, but also inspiring afternoon. Who is invited: Everyone! Anyone from within CCV or outside of CCV are encouraged to join.
