Green River Reservoir


Green River Reservoir is a hidden jewel in Northern Vermont.  Loons, the ability to have fires at solo sites, camping at the water's edge, and the beauty of this very special place are the reasons Green River was selected as the location for the solo days.  While other people will likely be within view at times, our personal experience is that Green River Reservoir is a powerful and beautiful place to deepen personal understanding and connection with the Earth.






Metta Earth Institute


Metta Earth Institute is an educational retreat center integrating comtemplative practice, deep ecology, regenerative food systems, and social activitism to create resilent community.  Located at the edge of the Breadloaf Wilderness in South Lincoln, Vermont it offers a unique location to touch the wild.
