What is Treleven?

Treleven is a learning and retreat collaborative that promotes stewardship, social action, reverence, and innovation. We care deeply about the way humans are connected with the land, with our deeper selves, and with one another.

How do we do this?

We offer workshops, classes, internships, skill-shares, retreats, concerts, celebrations and certificate programs. We also welcome individuals and groups to propose self-directed activities that share the Treleven values.

Where do we do this?

Most activities take place on Treleven Farm- a working sheep farm nestled in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. Some programs are available on-line, or sponsored by Treleven at other sites. Treleven is close to the Burlington International and Albany International Airports.


May participants stay on site?

There are limited housing and camping opportunities on the farm and a wide, wonderful range of lodging options nearby, including beautiful state parks, rooms in private homes and full scale resorts. For more information visit Addison County’s Lodging Listings. If you would like to camp on the farm, please contact us ahead of time to learn about ground conditions (sometimes it is just too wet for tents). At this time we do not have hook-ups or sanitary facilities available for campers, but the local campgrounds do.

What is your organizational structure?

Treleven Inc. is a tax exempt, non-profit corporation. The Board consists of five families including educators, farmers, lawyers, therapists, creative artists, and community developers. The Board makes decisions by consensus and meetings are open to the public. We welcome any person or organization interested in the relationships people have with the earth, the spirit, themselves, and others to become members. Membership is not required to participate in Treleven events.

How is Treleven related to other organizations?

Treleven works co-operatively with organizations and individuals that share common interests. Please see links in our blogroll.
