    Join Guido Masé, cofounder of The Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism, to learn how health care can be easy, delicious, and effective with The Wild Medicine Solution.

    Blending traditional herbal medicine with history, mythology, clinical practice, and recent findings in physiology and biochemistry, Masé's new book, The Wild Medicine Solution, explores the three classes of plants necessary for the healthy functioning of our bodies and minds--aromatics, bitters, and tonics.

    Discover the Civil War in today's Vermont with Howard Coffin.

    Today, throughout Vermont, it is possible to identify hundreds and hundreds of Civil War-related sites. Throughout Vermont are soldier homes, halls where war meetings encouraged enlistments, churches where soldier funerals were held and abolitionists spoke, monuments to those who served, hospital sites, and homes where women gathered to make items for the soldiers. The Vermont State House is a virtual Civil War museum. A building survives in Woodstock where the war was administered. Cemeteries hold the gravestones of many of the 34,000 who fought. A field even exists where in 1803 a Quaker preacher...

    Join us for a discussion featuring editor Dao X. Tran, as well as readings by local changemakers Patrick Brown, Denise Dunbar, Reuben Jackson, and others.

    In the great tradition of Howard Zinn, 101 Changemakers offers a “peoples’ history” version of the individuals who have shaped our country, specially designed for middle school students.

    “For too many young people, history is just plain boring. History can seem like it is all about random dates and facts about powerful kings and important presidents making long-winded speeches. History should be exciting. It should be thrilling. It tells us the greatest stories ever told, and those stories contain lessons from the past that can help us create a better future. But we can only do that if...
