In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to those who are most vulnerable in our community, the River Garden will be closed to the public until April 6th. At that time the staff will use the latest information from the Department of Health to determine if we should resume our regular open hours of Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Cabin Fever Expo, which was scheduled for March 21st is postponed to a date to be determined. The Women's Expo, which was scheduled for May 1 is postponed to a date to be determined. We are also postponing all scheduled Brown Bag Lunch events until further notice. We will post a notification with the new date details as soon as possible.
Please remember to keep yourself and others safe by staying home if you have any cold or flu symptoms. Visit or for more information.

Strolling of the Heifers can use your help!

SOTH volunteeringStrolling of the Heifers could not happen without the help of many, many volunteers — some for just a few hours, some who help all year long.  The Parade, the Expo, the Summit and other events all truly depend on the community coming together and working to make them happen.

We have many dedicated volunteers, but we can always use more help! For example, here are some things that might appeal to you:

  • Parade planning and monitoring (anything and everything to keep the parade on schedule)
  • Slow Living Expo setup and cleanup
  • Merchandise sales during various parts of Stroll Weekend
  • Help with the Tour de Heifer or the Slow Living Summit
  • Be a River Garden ambassador (year-round)
  • Any ideas you might have to contribute!

For more information or if you have questions, please contact Vicki Friedman, our volunteer coordinator, at, or phone her at 802-246-0982 (leave a message if she is not in).

Or fill in the information form below, and we’ll get back to you very soon to talk about how to you can get involved.
