    Norwich University, Harmon Drive, Northfield, VT, United States

    The Peace and War Center at Norwich University presents Suraj Budathoki for a talk entitled, “An Introduction to Bhutan: Politics, Ethnic Cleansing, Gross National Happiness and Uncertain Futures of Minorities & Evicted Bhutanese.”

    This event is free and open to the public and will be held on Friday, March 3, from 11:30-12:30 p.m. in the Kreitzberg Library Todd Multipurpose Room.

    Budathoki was expelled from Bhutan with his family at age nine when that country’s government engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing. He went to schools in a refugee camp in Nepal and crushed rocks with a hammer to make money for his family. Budathoki came to Manchester, N.H., in 2009 at age 28 as part of the United States refugee resettlement program and immediately found entry-level employment. Only five years later he was able to purchase a home for himself, his wife, and young daughter, and son and obtained a bachelor’s degree from Southern New Hampshire University. He is currently a student in Norwich University’s online Master of Arts in International Relations program.

    Budathoki is a founding member of the non-profit Bhutanese Community of New Hampshire. His work aims to involve the U.S. Congress to aid family reunification, promotion and protection of human rights in Bhutan, and repatriation of refugees from refugee camps, to resolve these problems and build sustainable peace in Bhutan.

     

    There will be discussion as time permits.

    From White Rock Mountain to Elmore Mountain, great trails and wonderful vistas abound year round — in our own backyard. Though often neglected in favor of the better known main spine of the Green Mountains and New Hampshire’s White Mountains, the picturesque Worcester Range has something for everyone. Mount Hunger offers spectacular views in almost every direction. Mount Elmore boasts one of Vermont’s few remaining fire towers. The Skyline Trail, linking Mount Hunger to Worcester Mountain, provides solitude unmatched on the Long Trail. GMC members Steve and Heather Bailey have hiked, snowshoed and skied the Worcester Range trails, including the least traveled. They will share never-before-presented photos, experiences, and fascinating historical notes.

    $5 GMC members / $8 General Admission (Kids under 12 free)

      The Morrisville veterinarian who broke a record swimming the English Channel last year will speak at Johnson State College on March 9.

      The talk by Dr. Paula Yankauskas will begin at 4:30 p.m. in room 207 of Bentley Hall. The event is free to the public.

      Yankauskas will appear with Alburgh author Glenn Stout, whose book “Young Woman & The Sea” is about Trudy Ederle, an American who, in 1926, became the first woman to swim across the English Channel.

      Yankauskas, in her 60s, set a record as the oldest American woman to swim 21 miles in the channel from England to France on the first attempt.

      GMC Slide Show: Hiking the Worcester Range

      From White Rock Mountain to Elmore Mountain, great trails and wonderful vistas abound year round — in our own backyard. Though often neglected in favor of the better known main spine of the Green Mountains and New Hampshire’s White Mountains, the picturesque Worcester Range has something for everyone. Mount Hunger offers spectacular views in almost every direction. Mount Elmore boasts one of Vermont’s few remaining fire towers. The Skyline Trail, linking Mount Hunger to Worcester Mountain, provides solitude unmatched on the Long Trail. GMC members Steve and Heather Bailey have hiked, snowshoed and skied the Worcester Range trails, including the least traveled. They will share never-before-presented photos, experiences, and fascinating historical notes.

      $5 GMC members / $8 General Admission (Kids under 12 free)

    The Grow It! workshops for community and school garden leaders are being offered at six locations around Vermont, including the Montpelier High School, in Montpelier. Grow It! provides timely training and networking opportunities for volunteers, coordinators, and others involved in supporting community-based gardens across the state. The Montpelier workshop is presented by Vermont Community Garden Network (VCGN) in partnership with garden leader Joann Darling and Montpelier High School and with support from Good Food Good Medicine.

    Through the Grow It! workshops, VCGN brings people, ideas and resources together to help cultivate the community and school garden movement. In the words of Jane Metcalf, Upper Valley Haven Extension Master Gardener Volunteer: “The Grow It! workshop provided a real opportunity to hear and share with others the things that we do. I suddenly felt a much stronger connection with the folks who grow, harvest, and store food. We all have so much to offer one another. VCGN is the glue that holds us all together.”

    The March workshop will explore “Growing Community”—the role community-based gardens can play in strengthening communities and how these common spaces can serve as more than only spaces to grow food. Participants will learn strategies to boost their gardens and programs, share stories and swap ideas with fellow garden leaders.

    The Grow It! workshop in Montpelier is Thursday, March 16, from 4:00-7:00pm, including a light meal. The workshop will take place at Montpelier High School at 5 High School Dr., Montpelier, VT 05602.

    Registration is $35. Group discounts available for three or more registrants. Sliding scale available upon request. Please pre-register by visiting http://vcgn.org/what-we-do/growit or by calling the VCGN office at (802) 861-4769.

    The Public Art Master Plan kicks off March 21 with with a “pop up” museum called “The heART of Montpelier Gallery” at City Hall, from 6 to 8 pm.

    The City of Montpelier, in collaboration with Montpelier Alive and the Community Engagement Lab, has received a $50,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to create a master plan for public art, and to commission the city’s first major public art work to be to be installed at the One Taylor Street Redevelopment Project.

    The NEA awards its “Our Town” grants to “help transform communities into lively, beautiful, resilient places with the arts at their core,” according to the organization’s website. The federal grant has been matched by a $50,000 commitment from the city, and requires an additional $50,000 in fund-raising and about $14,00 matched in inkind services, for a total budget of $164,000 over two years.

    Planning for the Montpelier ArtSynergy Master Plan will have at its heart a series of “creative visioning workshops”— led by teaching artists — which will aim to engage diverse segments of the community. The workshops will range from stand-alone events to residencies spanning up to a week and will culminate in public performances/exhibits of works the participants create. The major public artwork commissioned through the grant will be chosen through a juried competition that will solicit proposals from Vermont artists, according to Paul Gambill, founder and executive director of the Community Engagement Lab. It is likely to be installed at One Taylor Street in the spring of 2019, he said.

    “The people of Montpelier are creative, spirited and ingenious,” said Amanda Golden of Designing Local, an Ohio-based consultant whose firm has been hired to help in the planning process. The ArtSynergy Master Plan will “set the standard for how we begin to implement and enjoy public art,” she said. Public art, she added, “helps us celebrate our heritage, communicates our direction, and characterizes our sense of place.”

    The two-year-plus planning process kicks off on March 21, with a “pop up” museum called “The heART of Montpelier Gallery” a “pop-up museum” at City Hall, from 6 to 8 pm. Golden is asking residents to bring in objects that represent the reasons why they love Montpelier. “It could be a photograph of friends, sports memorabilia, or a leaf from your favorite tree,” she said.
