Rise VT Wellness Specialist Betsy Cherrier, Fournier, had to pleasure meeting up with a some friendly folks at the Swanton Tribal Council on Grand Avenue in Swanton VT, Chief Moose took a spin on the RiseVT smoothie bike while Louise Larivee & Jeanie Gregory Hilliker prepared a nice venue of healthy food to share,  family and friends from the “Treat the Soul Heal the Heart” group gathered together in the large community room with full kitchen where they prepare dinners to enjoy. While we all sat around the dinner table sharing stories, Louise and Jeanie shared with me how great it would be to have raised beds gardens to grow veggies, and herbs, to share with community members as well as teaching them how to prepare food with fresh veggies and herbs.  RiseVT & Hudak Farms jumped on board to help them harvest this idea.   The raised beds are filled with fresh veggies and herds with growing possibilities to enhance growth and educational opportunities for the Swanton community members.
