Events planned for Stroll Weekend (June 4-7) have been cancelled or postponed. Please read Executive Director Lissa Harris's full statement here.

The River Garden will be closed to the public until Vermont's Stay Home Stay Safe orders are lifted. 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. All Brown Bag Lunches and Vendor Expos will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so.

Two exhibits bloom at River Garden in May

In the rear gallery: Creative Visions: poetry, art and beautiful handmade books by young people from The Poetry Studio in Marlboro, Vermont

Founded by poet-teacher Ann Gengarelly in 1995, The Poetry Studio offers classes to students ranging in age from six to seventeen.  In a nurturing environment students are invited to slow down and pay attention, whether it is writing a poem or creating a piece of art.  This exhibit honors the extraordinary voices and visual expression that have unfolded at the Studio over the past two years.
