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

I'm looking for work. In the past 9 years or so, I've worked as a tutor and paraeducator for local schools and would be glad to tutor children or adults in English, French, History/Social Studies, and Independent Studies of all sorts (Art History, for instance).
I am also a seasoned Administrative Assistant who can use the Microsoft Suite and am internet-savvy. I am good at finding information and helping people connect with almost anything they need to know.
I attended Bread Loaf Writers' Conference twice and was a Full Fellow at Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT. (nonfiction).
Love to do artistic and literary projects, educational and library-related work.
Eldercare and companionship (sorry, can't lift over 25 lbs.) is something else in which I have experience. I like older people and would be glad to run errands, help get to doctors' appointments, cook, do light housework, etc.
