Welcome to Sage Mountain.  Founded by Rosemary Gladstar and family over 30 years ago, Sage Mountain Retreat Center & Native Plant Preserve is one of New England’s foremost learning centers for herbs and earth awareness. Located on 500 wilderness acres in central Vermont, this beautiful piece of Earth Mother is a natural sanctuary and teaching site. There is an incredible assortment of wild herbs and flowers growing in habitats that vary from meadows to mountaintops, from forest to fens. Our wild neighbors include deer, bear, moose, beavers, bobcat, otters, fox and a wonderful variety of feathered folk that honor us with their presence. Our facilities are simple, rustic and comfortable and provide a relaxing and beautiful place for participants to learn.

Though the knowledge and wisdom shared at our many programs and events has been outstanding and has helped fuel the ‘herbal renaissance’, the teachings have been far more than just informational in nature.  Rich in spirit, they’ve nourished the heart as well as the mind.  Through an ever-growing network with other herbalists and herbal programs/events around the country, we have built a strong green community and have created an interface with other traditions of healing while at the same time keeping an earth based herbal tradition alive and thriving in this country. Often referred to as an herbal renaissance or resurgence, we have witnessed the interest in herbal and natural healing grow extraordinarily and exponentially in the past few years…. thank you for being part of this growing green movement that is transforming modern health and health care in this country.
