Preservation Trust of Vermont
Community Gathering in Coventry, VT
Grand Isle Lake House

Our downtowns and village centers are at the core of community life here in our beautiful state. Historic Preservation plays an important role in activating the vibrancy of our communities and offering us places to connect, debate, grieve and celebrate.  We offer this retreat for any nonprofit, for profit, community supported enterprise, or public facility taking on or exploring a building rehabilitation project or a project that strengthens their community.

Our retreats are designed to be interactive and project specific. Your group will be asked to focus on an issue or challenge that once addressed, would help move your project to the next level. You will be joined by others who are working on similar types of projects along with potential funders and technical assistance providers.  
Together we can help connect you with the resources you need to accomplish your goals.   
Have more than one big issue or challenge? Don't worry! We have found that when groups working on similar types of projects get together, they learn from one another and find that the group discussions offer insights into your individual projects in ways that were not anticipated.
All retreats begin at 3:00 and end after lunch the following day.  Space is limited to around 20 participants with a limited number of single rooms, so reservations should be made as early as possible. The costs are $95 for a shared room and $125 for a single room.
All meals are included and there is plenty of time for casual conversation and contemplative moments...all part of the retreat experience!
