and Church of our Saviour
Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains on the ancestral land of the Abenaki, Mission Farm has a rich history in the Killington Valley.
Since 1817 this place has continued to be a sacred space in this community as a mission of the Episcopal Church in Vermont. We continue to hold this tradition seeking to live more simply, humbly and gently on the earth.

GARDENING AND LAND MANAGEMENT AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE - Introduction
GARDENING AND LAND MANAGEMENT AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE - PRACTICUM
8:30 Morning Meditation at Mission Farm You are invited to come alongside others, the community of life at Mission Farm, and the Holy Spirit through zoom as we meditate together – opening ourselves to whatever the new day offers. As we meditate, you are invited to sit in the stillness and just be. If you would like to direct your meditation toward the new life that is unfolding at Mission Farm we welcome you to hold that intention as well. All are welcome – whether this is your first time or your hundredth time in meditation we hope that you find a moment of grounding as you walk into your new day.
Agriculture at Mission Farm
We are visioning a sustainable future of regenerative growing at Mission Farm. Our plans focus on caring for the land while responding to a need in our local food system for justice and accessibility to local organic food.
Currently the land is home to gardens and a new flock of chickens. Watch for our chicken-cam coming soon!
Mission Farm is located on ancestral Abenaki Land and was the site of Elizabeth Wood Clement's grandfather’s homestead. The property was deeded to the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont in 1895, along with Church of our Saviour, the farmhouse and accompanying land and outbuildings.
Trails: The Mission Farm Trails are developed and maintained by volunteers. They are open to the public year round for hiking and snowshoeing. Find our Trail Map here.
