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

A snowy Day

It's March 1, 2012, and it's a very snowy day... I hear the roads are slippery, and we seem to be getting a lot of snow coming down. Joya and Andrew are going to visit this weekend-- or at least Joya is (HOORAY!!). Andy will come for dinner on Sat.from Vermont Law School. He's been there a lot since he started his first year studies, and I've missed him very much-- Joya, too. But I know I'll see her once every four or six weeks. Andrew's so busy I am never quite sure when he will come, though it was great to see him here with Limor the other day. Snow, chickadees, cold, winter finally-- though sugaring is starting and now it is almost time for spring...
