The Environmental Cooperative brings together regional environmental organizations, community groups, educators, the Vassar College community, and residents to increase our positive impact and expand conservation efforts in the Hudson Valley. We aim to actively create and maintain natural areas to connect people with the outdoors and their community and foster a greater community mindset of environmental stewardship.

To ensure the safety of the community, students and staff the Vassar Farm and Ecological Preserve will be closed to non-essential visitors  from August 8th to September 25th. The Poughkeepsie Farm Project and Community Gardens will remain open, both of which will remain cordoned off from campus. If you have any questions, please contact Keri VanCamp (
