  • Green is a good word to describe the blooming state of Vermont, with its green mountains, lush forests, eco-friendly and conscious citizens, and innovation. Growing up in the woods near the favored town of Brattleboro, I've got to learn and see all the green around me, and how important the word green really is. Green symbolizes well being, self-respect, learning, growth and harmony.

    Where I live, people from Vermont don't just take pride in calling themselves leaders of one of the greenest states in the country environmentally, but really appreciate the earth and understand how the world needs some T.L.C. right now. Whether its planting a garden, cutting back on luxuries that use electricity or oil, learning to respect the earth, protesting pipelines or the use of fossil fuels, or riding a bike, Vermonters are down to their roots, back to the land, and appreciate what green means. After all, "These green mountains are my home." - Vermont State Song (Diane Martin)
