The Robert H. Gibson River Garden

In a major new initiative to strengthen our regional food system and further our mission, in November 2013 Strolling of the Heifers acquired the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, a beautiful building prominently located at 157 Main Street in the heart of downtown Brattleboro.

We are developing, at the River Garden, a vibrant new regional resource: The Farm/Food Innovation Center. At the same time, this 4500 square-foot space continues to be available as a public resource.

Join us daily at noon for free Brown Bag Lunch events!
