Better Selves Fellowship

Saturday August 24 – Friday August 30

Hello August Better Selves Fellows!

All of us here at the farm are so excited to welcome you to Vermont and Knoll Farm this summer.

On this page you will find all of the information you need to get yourselves here. After that we’ll take care of the rest!

Your fellowship begins on SATURDAY, AUGUST 24 and ends on FRIDAY, AUGUST 30. Please plan to  arrive between 12 and 4 PM so that we may begin with our orientation as close to 5 as possible.

If you are planning to travel by air please let Mandy know your flight information as soon as possible. Once we have this data we will let you all  know shuttle times to the farm and where to meet at the airport.

We can also meet you at the train station (Waterbury or Montpelier) or the bus station (Montpelier)

Past fellows have told us that they have over-packed and didn’t realize how little they would need.

We suggest the following:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • Flashlight or headlamp and extra batteries
  • Bathroom kit
  • Towel and washcloth
  • Sunscreen and bug repellent
  • Comfortable, casual clothing and sneakers, sandals such as tevas or chacos, or lightweight hiking boots
  • Rain gear (waterproof jacket or poncho; waterproof pants and boots can be helpful)
  • Swimsuit
  • Writing material, laptop, etc.
  • A small bag or backpack to carry your things around the farm

We will be transporting your bags up to the Refuge Yurt Village in the back of our pick up truck so please pack in bags that can be closed if possible.

Here are a few resources for your review:
