What is life like in Vermont?
Map of Vermont
Vermont is an Amazing Place
Vermont is a world apart from the one most people live in. The people of Vermont come from traditions that seem to have disappeared in other areas of the country. Honesty is not only admired it is a way of life. Organic is the norm. Exercise comes from daily chores and from the desire to live a healthier lifestyle. Micro Dairies sell raw milk to neighbors. Organic eggs can be bought on the honor system. Bartering is a normal part of life where one person hays the fields for their neighbors and rather than buying the hay, pays for it by plowing the driveway.
Town Meeting is not a televised, staged event for politicians. It is the way the citizens come together to make decision on how to run their own town. Little attention is paid to politicians that day. It is a day to think of how to care for the elderly, where to obtain gravel for the dirt roads and should the library expand into the basement or is it big enough already?
Vermonters go out into the forest to pick fiddlehead ferns to sell at the Farmer's Markets which by the way are open year round despite the many months of winter. Vermonters grow cucumbers to make pickle recipes passed down for generations. Maple sap is gathered from century old trees and made into syrup.
All year round you will find fairs and festivals celebrating the artists, craftspeople, cultural heritage, innovations, and technology produced in Vermont.
From back to the land movements, to secessionist movements to staunch conservatives Vermont has a full range of thinkers, but thinkers who are willing to work politely and honestly together to create a wonderful community. Come visit Vermont and see for yourselves...
