Pepper Patch Community Garden

The Pepper Patch Community Garden is located in an empty city-owned lot at the south-west corner of John St E and Albert St. (138 Albert Street) This project was started in 2014 by the We Grow Food organization and local neighbors. The goal is to have community members volunteer their time to maintain the garden which then provides a communal harvest to everyone. Anyone is free to help or harvest what they need. We all work together! We’re not just building a garden…we’re building a community!

Meadow Dance 

Meadowdance is a group of 8 adults and children living in a cooperative household. We live on a small farm in Walden, Vermont, about 15 minutes from St. Johnsbury, and 40 minutes from Montpelier, the state capital.

Be sure to read our newest news item, as you will see that Meadowdance is no longer accepting new members. Thank you everybody for your interest in our endeavor.

We began living together in May, 2000. We created Meadowdance over three years of planning and gathering, using an energetic e-mail based discussion, in-person gatherings every few months, and working groups to get things done. Our members come from a variety of locations in the US and range in age from newborns to 50 somethings. Our members might be married or single, straight or gay, atheist or agnostic or spiritual, vegetarian or omnivorous, outspoken or quiet. We share a love of children, decision-making by consensus, an enthusiasm for learning as part of daily life, and a sense of fun.
