There's maple syrup, country pies, candlelit dinners for a small crowd and handmade pottery. In other words, there's something for everyone.

BALE stands for Building a Local Economy. BALE is a non-profit organization with an office in South Royalton that serves as an economy resource center for local economy initiatives in the White River Valley. Among its many activities, BALE hosts a series of “deep-dive” programs in Randolph and South Royalton called Building Resilient Communities and Why Build A Local Economy. These programs focus on the underlying challenges of creating resilient communities in a time of economic scarcity and ecological disruption. As with all of BALE’s work, the objective is solutions-focused initiatives and knowledge that empower and engage communities. Thus, advancing cooperative models (worker ownership, food coops, and other democratic governance systems), strong local food systems, localized energy initiatives, and creating local investment and exchange models are woven into the dialogues as solutions that will, ultimately, increase regional resilience over time.
