The Wheeler Homestead , located on Dorset Street In South Burlington, is owned by the City but houses a unique operation known as Common Roots, a non-profit offering programs to teach sustainability and organic gardening.
The Wheeler Homestead rests on acres of land overlooking Mt. Mansfield and offers a quaint, Vermont feel for the most discerning of couples looking for a unique experience.
Common Roots connects farmers, educators, youth, and community members to build a sustainable future through food and land stewardship education. By collectively growing food for our programs and food shelves, we celebrate the soil and soul of community. Our regenerative farming practices provide food and soil security nurturing our common roots.
A portion of all proceeds from events returns back to the purpose of this program..
The Wheeler House is now accepting 2023 reservations for weddings and events. This is a non-profit organization and 5% of the proceeds benefit Common Roots. Check out common roots.com to learn more about this organization.
Lake Champlain is a beautiful asset for The State of Vermont and offers gorgeous sunsets with a view of the Adirondacks of NY.
