Vermont farms are still recovering from flooding as they enter the growing season

BERLIN, Vt. (AP) — Hundreds of Vermont farms are still recovering from last July’s catastrophic flooding and other extreme weather as they head into this year’s growing season. Dog River Farm, in Berlin, Vermont, lost nearly all its produce crops in the July flooding. The farm removed truckloads of river silt and sand from the fields before another round of flooding in December washed away more precious soils, wiped out the farm’s garlic planted in late fall and left behind more silt and several giant holes in a field, said owner George Gross on Wednesday. VERMONT OFFICIALS URGE FARMERS TO DOCUMENT, REPORT FLOOD-RELATED CROP DAMAGE “We had 15,000 garlic heads — bulbs growing here which is a significant amount of retail dollars,” he said pointing to a section of field. “And now they’re gone. They’re somewhere down along the Winooski (River).” Goat farmers Jeremy and Jennifer Leather lost straw bales near the river that were washed away in the July flooding and others were saturated and unusable, Jeremy said. Their hay also got filled with silt that they are still cleaning up. They’ve had to buy feed to supplement what the goats are eating, which has been costly and challenging, he said. A grassroots fundraising campaign called Dig Deep Vermont announced Wednesday that it’s giving out its first grants to 32 farms to help with some of those expenses. It estimated farms suffered around $45 million in losses statewide from the flooding, extreme weather and persistent rains. “The urgency around the need for feed and access to fields for spring planting has reached critical levels,” said Vermont Farm Bureau President Jackie Folsom, who said the campaign is being extended. While the grants ranging from $200 to $1800 won’t make farms whole, they hopefully will help pay some of their expenses, said Vermont Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts. “So maybe it’s going to put fuel in a tractor, maybe it’s going to buy seed, it’s going to buy fertilizer, maybe it’s going to pay for supplies. That’s what the goal of these private donations are,” Tebbetts said at a Statehouse press conference. “It’s not going to cover everything but it does give farmers a little bit of hope and it hopefully will pay a bill or two.” The losses have been staggering from the severe weather, he said. “They’re into the millions of dollars, whether it’s crop loss, equipment, debris that needs to be removed from fields, Tebbetts said. Sand and silt are sitting in farm fields and corn has not been harvested in some sections along Route 2 on the 36-mile (57-kilometer) stretch between Montpelier and St. Johnsbury, said Folsom. “The silt, they’re going to have to dig it up and move it out. And unfortunately, that’s on the farmers’ dime because they can’t put it back into the rivers, they can’t put it at the end of the fields for buffers. They have to remove that silt before they plant anything,” she said. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Many of them will also have to test their fields for contamination. Gross said he doesn’t know what the season holds but for now, his anxiety level will be very high until the harvest is complete in mid- to late-November. “That’s a long to wait and a lot of work to put forward in hopes that you’re going to have a pay out but that’s farming,” he said.

Parents angry as they deal with ‘aggression’ from drivers while trying to keep road outside school safe for children

Parents have been left reeling after reportedly dealing with drivers “shouting and swearing” at them. Volunteer mums and dads stand along Norfolk Street, Cambridge, to block the road outside St Matthew’s Primary School during pick-up and drop-off times – when it is closed to cars. They describe being subjected to threatening behaviour by drivers, cars mounting the kerb to drive around them and delivery drivers lying to volunteers about delivering to the closed stretch of road. The temporary closures of Norfolk Street are in place for children’s safety, under a ‘School Streets’ initiative. The information is shown to drivers through a sign next to the road, the words ‘school street’ painted onto the road, as well as the parent volunteers and their portable barrier. Read more: See which primary schools are the most oversubscribed in Cambridgeshire Read more: All the Cambridgeshire primary schools rated ‘outstanding’ in their last Ofsted report Parent volunteer Henry Wilton, said: “Most drivers are grateful when they see that we’re just enforcing the traffic sign and trying to keep children safe, but we have had to deal with moments of aggression. “We had a van mount the pavement, brushing my partner, to drive round the barrier. I had a car drive straight at me, with the driver yelling abuse. “These incidents are a good reminder of why the School Streets scheme is so important. It’s there to protect children going in and out of school, and the rare aggressive drivers that we encounter are the biggest danger to them.” Georgia Orwell, another parent volunteer, said: “After I took over organising the rota in September, I was shocked by the kinds of incidents I was being told about. We do report aggressive delivery and taxi drivers to the relevant authorities, but the message doesn’t seem to be getting through that this is a legitimate scheme that should be respected by drivers. “My hope is that, if the county council can install more suitable infrastructure next to the school, it will keep everyone safer and protect families from the worst driver behaviour.” A Cambridgeshire Police spokesperson explained that its local team has planned a visit to the school this week, during which the sergeant will speak to the headteacher and volunteers. The spokesperson continued: “We would encourage people to continue to report any concerns to us, online or via 101, so we can build up a picture of what is happening and work with partners to address these.” The ‘School Streets’ initiative was first introduced in Cambridgeshire in 2020. Schools can apply to Cambridgeshire County Council for the road outside their building to be included. A council spokesperson commented: “School Streets have proved popular across the county, helping parents and children feel safer and better able to walk and wheel to and from school. We monitor all School Streets and we’re aware of the situation at St Matthew’s Primary School. We will be raising our concerns with the police. “We are working with highways engineers and the volunteers to introduce a solution which will further increase safety for our most vulnerable of road users, children. We currently train volunteers to best support them and we will be making further improvements to our training programme. “The volunteers are doing amazing work encouraging school children to walk, cycle and scoot to and from school and this type of behaviour towards volunteers is not acceptable.” A spokesperson for St Matthew’s Primary School said: “Our volunteers do an amazing job in all weathers. The scheme has made a huge difference to the safety of the children at the start and end of the school day. “Before the scheme started, Norfolk Street was incredibly busy, with cars turning and reversing . It just did not feel safe. So, we are all incredibly grateful to the volunteers for what they do. The local community has been really supportive too (some local residents also volunteer) and most drivers are really cooperative when they understand that the road is closed. “It is a real shame that a small minority of drivers behave badly.” Do you want more of the latest Cambridgeshire news as it comes in?
