The Garden at 485 Elm
People growing together:
a collaborative community garden in Montpelier, Vermont

Join Us for a River Discovery Walk

Naturalist and 485 Elm gardener Ned Swanberg will lead us in looking for late summer changes along the river.

  • What:  River Discovery Walk Along the North Branch
  • When:  Thursday, September Sep 13, 5:30-7 p.m.
  • Where:  Meet at the Garden at 485 Elm in Montpelier

The Garden at 485 Elm lies along the North Branch of the Winooski River. This affects the garden—and how we garden affects the river. Discover life along the river that is an important part of our lives.

What is fruiting, flying, feeding? What limits and what benefits the wild things we share the valley with? How can we keep the water clean at the edge of town?

This journey will include level walking for less than one mile. There is no cost.
