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.

What’s a heifer, anyway?

What’s a heifer, anyway?

That’s a question we’re often asked.  The answer is simple:

A heifer is a young cow who has not yet had a calf of her own.  And who is very cute, as you can see.

Come to the Strolling of the Heifers Parade on Saturday, June 8, 2019 to see up to 100 heifers, bedecked with flowers, ambling up Brattleboro’s historic Main Street. Be prompt — the parade starts at 10 a.m. sharp, and the heifers lead the parade! And stay for the 2019 Slow Living Expo — an all-day celebration of local food and Slow Living!
