Historic Preservation & Community Development Retreat, July 17-18, 2017

  • January 23, 2017
The United Nations defines community development as "a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems." Historic Preservation plays an important role in community development, particularly when so much of Vermont's preservation work is focused in our downtowns and village centers. 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.

Churches & Sacred Places Retreat, September 21-22, 2017

  • January 23, 2017
Churches and sacred places continue to play a critical role in the health and wellness of our communities. They often act as overflow shelters for our most vulnerable citizens or as community gathering places for cultural performances or events. All the while, these buildings can be challenging to maintain. We offer this retreat in partnership with Partners for Sacred Places, a non-denominational nonprofit organization, to explore potential partnerships for existing churches and new uses for under-utilized church buildings.
We're sorry but this retreat is now full. Please consider attending a different 2017 retreat or check back later to learn about our 2018 Preservation Retreats.
