The Site: Metta Earth Institute is a non-profit educational retreat center in Lincoln, Vermont. With 158 beautiful acres, we are nestled in a bowl of mountains with stunning views in all directions. Meadows, pastureland, and horticultural fields are interspersed with hardwood and evergreen forest, old orchards, stonewalls, seasonal streams, and an enormous variety of wild life habitat. Walking and hiking places abound, and a magnificent, pure river with clear pools and waterfalls is just a few minutes walk down the road. The center is based on a small scale diversified farm operating an acre-sized CSA and retreat garden along with Milking Shorthorn cows, Icelandic sheep, and heritage breed chickens. Other Metta Earth  spaces include a sunny dining and kitchen space, a light filled yoga room, a heritage barn, a greenhouse, and gardens.

Living at Metta Earth: Meals are vegetarian and are lovingly prepared with seasonal, local and organic foods. Much of our food comes from our acre organic garden and farmstead, while the rest is sourced from local organic farmers in the bioregion. We are able to accommodate many special dietary needs, so please let us know your requests ahead of time. Being close to the farm, participants have the opportunity to learn about harvesting, cooking, putting food by, and other aspects of organic, local food.
