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.

With an array of guest teachers and a focus on nature-based learning led by the landscape, you’ll find yourself inspired, nourished, and renewed after a weekend program.
