Directions from Montpelier, VT
Summer & Fall Directions:
- Take Route 12 North out of Montpelier. Drive about 10.5 miles, through Worcester Village and beyond.
- Turn left on Lower Hancock Brook Road, just before a red house, and drive 1 mile to #99 on the left. This is a Class 4 Road, which means it barricaded during snow season and spring mud season.
- Turn left into our driveway (marked "99" with a triangular orange sign), drive over the brook on our little bridge, and drive up towards the green and purple Tiny House. Park tightly in the parking area to leave room for others.
- Take Route 12 North out of Montpelier. Drive about 8.5 miles to Worcester Village, passing the gas station and the fire station.
- Turn Left on Minister Brook Road and drive 1.4 miles.
- After 1.4 miles, when Minister Brook Road turns into a dirt road, take a right on Hampshire Hill Road (up a steep hill).
- Continue 2.2 miles on Hampshire Hill Road to Upper Hancock Brook Road on the right. You will see our black mailbox (#99) at the intersection, as well as a road sign. Turn right and proceed 0.4 miles to the first driveway on the right, marked by a triangular orange sign that says #99.
A Note About Pets:
Please DO NOT bring any pets with you unless you've discussed it with us beforehand. Your pet needs to a) not create a distraction during classes, b) not fight with our two dogs, and c) not chase or harass wildlife. Please come prepared to either to leash your pet or have a humane system for keeping them in the car.
Camping on Site:
Free camping available on-site for all multi-day classes. Please let us know if you plan to camp. You will need to bring your own tent, sleeping pad, and warm sleeping bag: we are by a cool stream on a mountain slope, so the nights get cold. The only running water at the site is the stream (which you are welcome to jump in). We will have a reasonable amount of purified drinking water on site for daytime use, but if you can bring a gallon or two for evening consumption that is helpful. We have a composting toilet system and a fire pit for you to use. Lunches are provided for most programs, but dinner and breakfast are your own responsibility. We have a small outdoor kitchen with a four-burner propane cooktop which you are welcome to use. Our friends the mice, squirrels, and black bears share this land, so be sure to store your food in your car and please pack out all trash when you leave. In order to create a space that feels safe for all, we ask that you please leave alcohol and other mind-altering substances at home, and walk out to the public road if you need to smoke.
If you wish to camp here at other times, you are welcome to do so if you schedule in advance, and we kindly suggest a $15/person/night donation. We are within a half-mile of public mountain trails and one of the best swimming holes in the area, and you can make use of our outdoor classroom space, private stream, and 19 acres of mountainside forest.
