Local First Vermont
Local First Vermont is a program of VBSR.
Our mission is to preserve and enhance the economic, human, and natural vitality of Vermont communities by promoting the importance of purchasing from locally-owned independent businesses. We achieve this through education of citizens, businesses and local governments.
