Treleven in February

February was filled with dazzling sunlight and beautiful snow.  The Treleven Igloo, engineered by Ethan Mitchell, was constructed with the help of Susannah and the Putnam/Ruble family. It was large enough to shelter all six, although Cole and Eliza decided they did not want to spend the night inside. The igloo went up under the wondering gaze of Ethan’s 94 year old Grandfather, who later devoted many hours to watching it change shape as the weather grew warmer.

Don has been busy learning birds and trees. Cheryl and Erin have begun planning the summer farm and forest experience for families. Peggy’s narrative therapy master class is already over-subscribed. We are delighted to be participating with the Food Works Program at Middlebury College this year. Megan Cousino, our summer intern will be helping with Treleven activities both on the farm and in partnership with the Addison County Parent/Child Center.  We are looking forward to hosting a visit from Donna Eder and her family. They run the Mt. Gilead Retreat in Indiana; we expect to learn so much from them. We invite you to come explore the trails any time: mud season is just around the corner, so muck boots are advisable.
