The Vermont Land Trust and Shelburne Farms are teaming up to provide an extraordinary setting to celebrate the return to in person gathering. Let the shores of Lake Champlain and the agrarian beauty of the farm inspire your legacy. Whether your plan is complete or you’re just getting started, our expert panel will give examples, share stories, and answer questions—all with generous doses of humor.  

Participants from previous workshops shared their thoughts with us, including: “Thank you for organizing this, and thanks to the smart, funny panelists for sharing their wisdom,” and “The ease and comfort everyone had asking questions was unlike any similar gathering I have attended. No one was intimidated.”
