- We are following the business and travel guidelines posted by VermontVacation.com and the State of Vermont. Let’s take good care of each other!
- Please take extra care: we have limited or no cell service, and trails can be rough or uneven. Please don’t climb anything.
- Please wear a mask indoors as we have visitors from many locales; our community includes vulnerable members and children; and we don’t have a whole building air filtration system.
- Wash hands before and after your visit with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t have soap and water, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching structures and do not share binoculars or phones if possible.
- If you are not feeling well or have COVID-19 symptoms, please visit later when you are recovered.
- Please, no pets. This is our policy for all of our trails, to protect ground-nesting and ground-foraging birds.
- For additional information about staying safe while enjoying the outdoors, visit the State of Vermont’s website.
Some gardens have tidy rows. Others abound in diverse shapes and apparent tangles. Still others look like wild messy meadows. It’s all in what you grow and for whom.
We’re doing it for pollinators—and for you. Visit our diverse intentional plantings (gardens by any other name) and discover what we’re growing, which birds, insects, and others are benefiting, and what you too can do at home.
We invite visitors to enjoy their picnics at picnic tables here and there about the grounds. We do move them from time to time, but there are often tables in the Treehouse, on one of the lawns, and near the pond. We practice “pack it in; pack it out” in all parts of our landscape.
Our “gardens” are maintained by staff and volunteers; please make a donation to their upkeep if you can.
