Camping is free

Most of the materials for these workshops are gathered from the land by the instructors. This takes time and skill and thought to do responsibly. Since each project takes a different amount of effort to find and prepare materials, each one has a different materials fee, payable directly to the instructor at the start of each workshop. The fee is listed below the workshop description.

Price includes Saturday night pizza and a free camping spot.
Refunds can be given up to one week before the event minus 25%.

We are very family friendly and all ages are encouraged to come. Hoops & Singing, Kid Games and Woodland Toys are geared to 6-12 year olds (or anyone who is a child at heart). The rest of the classes are for adults and interested teens. We ask parents to keep in mind that they are responsible for supervising their own children. Teens will need to be supervised or responsible and self-sufficient.

The location is 21 Lazy Mill Road, Stannard, VT

Caution: Mapquest and Google maps will send you wrong.


Here are the directions:
We are about 15 minutes from Hardwick. Get yourself on Vermont rout 16 heading north out of Hardwick or south out of  Glover. On route 16 from either direction there is a green Stannard 3 miles sign. Turn there and follow a quarter mile or so to the red barn on your right. Take a right into Stannard Mountain Rd. Follow past Black Dirt Farm on the left. Continue 1 mile and take a right onto Lazy Mill Rd. (If you come to the church and town hall you have gone too far.).  We are the first driveway on the left. The address is 21 Lazy Mill Road - there will be a sign at the bottom.

General information
We are trying to make this a low impact event. We will have trash, recycling and compost bins available but please minimize.

This is a very rural spot. There is no wifi and cell coverage is spotty. There will be no showers or electricity. But there is a pond for swimming (at your own risk, of course), and there will be shelter for classes and eating in case the weather is not ideal.

Friday night dinner will be pot luck. 
Saturday night pizza will be provided.
Bring your own breakfasts and lunches.

Please bring you own cups, eating plates/bowls and utensils. There will be hand and dish washing stations and a fire pit to warm up or cook food. There is water on site. Gluten free and dairy free pizza can be available but please let us know if you want these when you register. 

The land is a somewhat flat farm field and apple orchard with sloped woods on one side and a pond and wetland complex on the other. Parking will be a short walk away but there is a driveway to the edge of the field with a few parking spots for folks with less walking ability. Please let us know if you have any accessibility questions. 

Camping information
We will let you know where the tenting area is when you get here. There will be a communal fire ring available for use any time. We hope to spend the evenings around the fire cooking, crafting and socializing. Please bring stories and craft and a chair if you need/want one.

Please do not bring, alcohol, drugs, pets or firearms.

We endeavor to cultivate a welcoming environment of purposeful inclusion, an environment where all can feel safe, valued, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other and the rest of the natural world. We cherish the diversity of humanity, a diversity which includes differences in sex, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual or affectional orientation, gender identity, financial means, education, and political perspective.
