One thing that you’ve done in the last year which makes you feel like you’ve aligned your consumer dollars, investments and/or donations with your values. And,
What is one thing in 2021 you’d like help with to keep you moving forward with your investing goals.
Eden Specialty Ciders Tasting
Eden Specialty Ciders was established in 2007 with the mission of supporting the working landscape of Vermont through cider. They grow their own cider variety apples and source from 7 other small local orchards. See the video.Eden Ciders founder and CEO, Eleanor Leger, will join us for a personal guided tasting of Eden Specialty Ciders. Eleanor presented to VT WIN prior to the pandemic, and we’re excited to hear how Eden is doing and what actions Eden took to pivot the company so they could not only survive, but grow!
After Eleanor’s update, Eleanor will take us through an interactive discussion of apple varieties, sustainable growing practices, cider making, and tasting of her exceptional, wine-style ciders. This event is open only to WIN members.
