Connecting Humans & Nature to promote Stewardship and Healing
Founded by herbalist Rosemary Gladstar and family in 1987, Sage Mountain Botanical Sanctuary is one of New England’s foremost conservation education centers. Located on 600 acres within nearly 80,000 acres of contiguous wilderness in central Vermont, this land has provided a sanctuary for over thirty years to plants, animals, and people. We invite you to learn more about Sage Mountain, the classes we offer, and to become involved in our programs and initiatives.
Come for a day hike, or book a cabin for an overnight retreat!
Whether you are a former student or simply a fan of Rosemary’s teachings, a visit to the Sanctuary is a special way to connect with the land and her legacy.
