Brattleboro

Vermont, USA

Located in Southern Vermont, the rivertown of Brattleboro, VT is located on Vermont's eastern border along the Connecticut River. Considered one of Smithsonian's Best Small Towns in America in 2012, Brattleboro has become a hidden urban art center partly due to its close proximity to New York City, Burlington, Boston, and Hartford; and its historic downtown is lined with galleries, antique shops, theaters, and dance studios. Led by the Rich Earth Institute, Brattleboro is the community fully piloting a urine to fertilizer cycle. The Urban Collaboratory has partnered with the Rich Earth Institute on resource recovery projects related to urine diversion and nutrient recovery for fertilizer.
