National Geographic Recognizes Farm Hub for Environmental Stewardship

The December issue of National Geographic magazine recognizes the Farm Hub and Ulster County for their environmental stewardship. As part of a full-color map called “Dreaming Big,” the magazine highlights many of the organizations and projects that, together, make the county a leader in environmental conservation, alternative energy, and outdoor recreation. It also focuses on Ulster County government, the only net carbon neutral county in the state and the only county to receive 100 percent of its electricity from renewable resources.

“We are proud that the Hudson Valley Farm Hub was featured in the spread, and we congratulate everyone involved for helping Ulster County receive this kind of national recognition,” says Brooke-Pickering Cole, associate director for community relations at the Farm Hub.

The magazine is circulated world-wide in 40 different languages and is read by 6.7 million people every month. See the full story from National Geographic here.
