Welcome to Quarry Hill's Blog!

Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT, founded 1946 by Barbara and Irving Fiske, is Vermont's oldest alternative community and at one time was probably also its largest. In the 60s -80s, as many as 90 people lived here.
It was and is visited each year, often in summer (but in every season, really) by visitors from all over the world.
We welcome interesting and creative people who are peaceful, bring no weapons, don't believe in hitting children or killing animals, and enjoy the beauty of Vermont and of themselves.

Most of us do not adhere to any particular dogma or religion, though many do find Eastern philosophy closest to our own thought (some of us are also members of the Quakers/Society of Friends).
We value the individual, particularly people who are energetic and have a sense of humor.
Visitors are welcome-- and prospective residents, too. There are some places for rent, others for sale. If interested, get in touch!
And, please follow the Blog and comment whenever you like!

"The symbol is the enemy of the reality, and the reality is ever one's true guide, true friend, true companion, and true self." Irving Fiske, 1908-1990

Snowy Morning/Japanese tragedy

It's not spring yet, even though the calendar says it is. Snow is on all the trees. Yet, I'm sure that if I look under a certain bit of snow on the side of our mountain, Snowdrop flowers will be rising from the dark earth.

It's been a long hard winter here in the East (and elsewhere). But nowhere has it been as hard as in Japan... I hope people will contribute money to the Red Cross and to Save the Children in order to help as many as we can. I sent some and plan to send some more.

Various places to donate to the Red Cross.
