Vermont Law School in South Royalton says it will open a new center on agriculture and food.
It's is designed to support everyone from advocates to farmers who are part of the growing trend toward community-based agriculture.
Officials in the center will provide legal and policy advice so anyone in the food system can help to support a rural working landscape.
And the law school has opened a new Land Use Clinic that will help train lawyers and policy makers in a wide variety of land use issues.
The clinic's mission includes issues such as energy-efficient housing, pollution prevention, and healthy land-use lifestyles.
