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

Help New York and New Jersey!

I've been worried about my family and friends in New York. Hope all are ok. We are here if anyone we know (or perhaps a friend) needs to spend some time in Vermont. We have some spaces available...
It seems that one of the best ways to help is to donate to the Red Cross on iTunes (or at the Red Cross website, I am sure). If one donates on iTunes, no receipt is available for taxes, but it is a quick and easy way to send some much-needed money to the RC.

I wonder if the shelters are still overflowing?
New York and New Jersey friends -- and all there-- we who went through Hurricane (or Tropical Storm) Irene are well aware of how terrible this is-- though you have even more to cope with than we did.

If we at QH can help, we want to. I made a donation, and Barbara wants to, and I will go and give blood.

Love to all our friends and family and empathy to all in the NYC/NJ area. I hope it won't keep you from voting,and that you will be safe...
