One Foot In Front of the Other, Slow and steady toward a Sustainable Planet

Join us in a WALK from Burlington to Montpelier.

Concerned citizens from across the state will be converging on the State House on Saturday afternoon for a Moving Planet event.   They will be arriving on bikes, skateboards, in carpools, trains, buses and ON FOOT.

We will WALK, one foot in front of the other, starting from Waterfront Park in Burlington at noon on Thursday, Sept. 22.

We will arrive in Montpelier in the afternoon  on Saturday, Sept. 24. Our route will be along Rt 2 following the Winooski River.  We’ll stop overnight in Richmond and in Waterbury.  Each day’s walk is about 13 miles.  (YES, You CAN do it!)

Local Motion is arranging for buses that will bring walkers back to Burlington in the evening.

We hope you will consider joining us on this adventure.  We are still in the process of pulling all the details together we would love any help you might have to offer.  We need contacts in Richmond and in Waterbury – churches or other community groups who might be willing to host us.  We have no idea at this point how many we will be – 2? 10? 20? 100? You can register to walk with us here or you can email  and find out more about this crazy adventure.

With love and gratitude,

Andy and Ruby
