GOSHEN – For most people, it’s hard to imagine running a full marathon. But for Goshen resident Britta Clark, running an ultra-distance trail race of 50K or more is as natural as stepping out her back door.

Clark is the daughter of Tony Clark and Shari Brown, co-owners of Goshen-based Blueberry Hill Inn and Ski Center. The 24-year-old returned to Goshen this spring after a year-long Fulbright fellowship in New Zealand, where she studied inter-generational justice.

Bikers take to new pump tracks

Posted on June 25, 2018 |

Moosalamoo Bristol pump tracks Calliope Beck in Goshen.jpg

Former professional mountain biker Ali Zimmer was excited to see more kids and adults get a chance to get on their two-wheelers and pedal around a new “pump track” that was recently constructed on the Bristol Recreation Field adjacent to Mount Abraham Union High School. A pump track is a dirt trail on which mountain bikers roll up and over little hillocks and banked turns designed in such a way as to enable the rider to create momentum by pumping their body up and down and thus keep forward momentum with little pedaling.

888 & Deca Start (90).jpg

GOSHEN — “It’s day two, and I’ve got stomach pains and hives,” Rachel Dunai said while resting on an inflated pool lounger on the floor of the Blueberry Hill Ski Center in Goshen this past Friday afternoon. Then she rose and headed back out onto the trail to run her second marathon of the day. 

“I’m a little allergic to exercise, so I’m doubling up my allergy pills,” she added.

Garden trio 1.jpg

This is the dream of gardeners everywhere: A garden that will be beautiful in every season — and indeed in every month — of the year. While this may seem to be a somewhat unreachable aspiration, I can assure you it is not at all out of the question.

We winter-weary Vermonters are already anticipating the flowers that will grace our gardens throughout the coming season. And many of us are also eagerly making plans for the new plants we hope to add in 2018.

Goshen town meeting wrap-up 2018

Posted on March 8, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



GOSHEN — After the annual potluck Monday evening, Goshen residents passed every item on the ballot in a relatively tame town meeting.

Voters will go forward with a general fund spending plan of $242,753, which represents a $9,936, or 4.2 percent, increase from last year’s approved budget of $232,817. Voters had thought they were voting on a $229,253 spending plan; the extra $13,500 will cover a new stainless steel sander and a new moldboard (the curved metal on a snowplow’s front end used to move snow) to improve care of town roads.

Native plants: Two books outline what to grow and how to grow it

Posted on February 26, 2018 |
By Judith Irven



Garden D51-3624 copy.jpg

DID YOU KNOW? Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury is acquiring all three books mentioned in this article on why and how to use native plants in our gardens.

 

We often hear of the importance of using native plants in our gardens.

First and foremost, native plants are extremely beneficial for the wider environment. In addition, since they are adapted to our climate, they should be easy to grow. And finally they help us create gardens with that elusive feeling of “belonging” in the wider landscape.
