Sage Mt. Herbal Retreat Center and Botanical Sanctuary

Pin It

East Barre, VT
Sanctuary Steward: Rosemary Gladstar

We currently own six hundred acres, 550 plus in wilderness forest, and 50 in fields with two homes and a retreat center. This land has a long history of logging, 100 acres is old growth. 450 is recovering from logging activity of previous owners and heavy damage from ice storms.

Plants already growing here include; blue cohosh, bloodroot, ginger, angelica, sarsparilla, goldenseal, ginseng, lady’s slipper and several other rare plants. This land is part of a large greenbelt of wilderness. You have to go fourteen miles before hitting a fence, road or other house. The woodlands, in spite of ice damage and previous logging history, is relatively healthy, supporting a nice variety of wildlife and habitat, home to bear, moose, deer, bobcat, fish, otter and more.

We are in the process of putting the land in conservation easements that will protect it as “wildlands forever”. The bog is magnificent and holds a large population of ladies slipper and other rare plants. Amen, it is holy land!

We have created a 1/4 mile medicine trail open to the public, and offer courses throughout the spring, summer, and fall that emphasize native plant conservation. We are in the process of building a viewers ramp into the bog that will be open to the public. We have done many woodland planting projects with native at-risk medicinals. We are working with the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) and with SIP (Stewardship Incentive Program.)
