Get Involved at Rock Point

Get Involved at Rock Point

By Taylor Vaughn

Tell Your Rock Point Story

Your stories help make Rock Point a special place, which is why we are compiling as many of them as we can! We’d like to share them in future promotions about Rock Point.

Just think about your past visits. Can you recall a fun camp experience, your first summer as a community gardener, or a poem that you were inspired to write while on a nature walk? If you’ve ever had a Rock Point experience, feeling, or conversation that reminds you of your loving, life-giving, liberating relationship with the stewardship of creation, please share it with us.

Email your submission to gardens@dioceseofvermont.org for consideration.

Become a Trail Steward

As Rock Point continues to implement its newly formed Land Use Plan, stewardship of our trails and forests is a top priority. In summer 2017, the Rock Point Board will be examining possible improvements the trail infrastructure with a view to ensuring long-term public access to Rock Point. As part of this initiative, Rock Point will be piloting a Trail Steward program. Stewards will receive free training through the Green Mountain Club, and will be responsible for helping maintain the trails and educate the public about Rock Point. To participate in our very first Trails Stewards Cohort, please send an email to gardens@dioceseofvermont.org.

Teach a Workshop

The Rock Point community is an assorted blend of gardeners, naturalists, educators, nature lovers and more, all with unique skills and knowledge. Starting in spring 2017, we’d also like Rock Point to become known as a place where community members  showcase their skills and knowledge by teaching others.

Perhaps you have a deep understanding of rare plant species, or extensive experience cooking with a cob oven. Knowledgeable volunteers are always welcome to host new workshops on site. Workshop leaders do not need to be certified educators in order to apply.

Please email gardens@dioceseofvermont.org for additional information on how to host a workshop at Rock Point.

Volunteer

Rock Point is continually seeking volunteers to assist with projects around the property. Opportunities range greatly, from garden maintenance to trail work, from gleaning wild blackberries to painting furniture for our outdoor kitchen. Come explore and give back to one of Burlington’s most extraordinary places. Email gardens@dioceseofvermont.org to sign up for our volunteer mailing list.
