Dear Applicant,

We are delighted that you are interested in participating in Touching the Earth: A Homestead Retreat for Young Adults, in Marlboro, VT (July 28 - August 19, 2023). To apply, please fill out and submit the application below by March 20th. Applications received after March 20th will be considered if there are still spaces available in the fourteen-member cohort.

You can expect to hear from one of the program faculty by April 1st. The next step in the application process will be a Zoom interview. (This will actually be more of a conversation than an interview – an opportunity for you to tell us more about yourself and to learn more about the program.) If you apply by March 20th you can expect to receive an email from us by April 15th letting you know if we are able to welcome you into the program.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please also fill out the Scholarship Application at the bottom of this form. 

We look forward to getting to know you through the application process.

Warm regards,

Kirstin, Dawn, Larkspur, Rupert, and Moon

Faculty for “Touching the Earth”
