Gesundheit Institute "Crysalis"A crucial aspect of our continued success derives from the supportive spirit of the community around us. 

In turn, we are committed to improving and contributing to our local community. We do this through offering our time and skill in building a variety of projects in collaboration with local non-profits, schools, and other organizations that contribute to the well being of our community. Our mission is best met when we can pair our efforts with those who can most benefit from them.

There are numerous examples of work the school created over the years throughout the Mad River Valley and beyond. Some of the more notable ones include the Wheeler Brook picnic pavillion, the "Snail" bus shelter in East Warren, the bandstand at the farmers market in Waitsfield, the play structure at the Verd-Mont trailer park, and a trail shelter for the Mad River Path. Waitsfield Green BandstandAside from the more visible examples of our work, we regularly create cabinetry, concrete countertops, small cob walls and buildings, timber frames, decks, renovations, treehouses and other building projects that may not be obvious to the general public. Additionally, we create structures that are trucked from the school to their final destination.  Click here to view a slideshow of many of our community projects.

Many of our classes are hands-on and require a building project as an integral aspect of the class. We are always keeping our eyes open for organizations and individuals who are interested in partnering with us on such projects.  If you have an idea for a potential project, please contact our Community Outreach Intern by filling out our Project Inquiry Form.
