About West River Community Project

The West River Community Project, housed in the West Townshend Country Store on Route 30 in West Townshend Vt, was established in 2010 to help foster the revitalization of our community in the West River Watershed. First, we wanted to create a public place to gather, make music, celebrate events and show art. We wanted to support sustainability and local development in the local foods movement.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to West River Community Project. .

What else you should know

Part of the experience will be outside to see how sap flows from the tree into buckets and lines hung on maple trees. Inside the sugar house, we'll have the evaporator boiling (water) so you can visualize the process that occurs during sugaring season.
