Promoting Rural Livelihoods

Agriculture, forestry, and outdoor recreation employ many of our families and friends, and have all contributed to producing the Bennington County landscape we feel at home in. BCCD works to preserve our rural economy and its creative contribution to our environment.

The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.
