The Wheeler House, owned by the city of South Burlington, sits on 119 acres of meadow, forest, trails, and gardens. Inside the old brick farmhouse, the classrooms feature wood floors and natural lighting with windows and views all around. On the far side of the building are rock gardens, a mud kitchen, a “hay kitchen,” and trails connecting to meadows and woodlands.
Common Roots grew out of a gathering of parents, teachers, and farmers who originally met in 2005 to discuss health, nutrition, and food systems. Today they are a 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization connecting farmers, educators, youth, families, and the wider community in building a sustainable future through place-based education and service programs.
