Afternoon Archery

This spring Keith Badger is offering archery as an afternoon class. Keith, who has taught Naturalist, bow making, and science at High Mowing for many years, finds that physical activities such as archery are incredibly important for teenagers, especially after a long day in the classroom.

“Archery was one of the first of the martial arts in many eastern traditions,” says Keith. “Maintaining the discipline of the body and the focus of the mind leads to a very clear emotional state.”

Once they’re done with Afternoon Clean Up, the students make their way over the …

The Eagle is Back!

eagle paintingThe eagle is back! Last year at exactly this time, I was witness to a baldheaded eagle ravaging our hen house. And now one year later, he has returned, observed from the main building’s third floor windows, circling the High Mowing fields in all his glory, perhaps looking for the chickens. For me, the return of the eagle (coincidently, on the anniversary of my father’s birth) has personal significance related to my father’s death three years ago. My beloved father, a Native American Cree, was on his death bed surrounded by family in our summer retreat cabin on a lagoon by the Eagle River in …

Abbot Hill Agriculture - Vital and Growing

Tomatoes from the High Mowing School farm

There is a rich history of biodynamic and community supported agriculture on Abbot Hill — a tradition that is driving High Mowing’s efforts to raise funds to purchase and conserve Frye Field. We spoke with Lincoln Geiger, co-founder of the Temple-Wilton Community Farm and dear friend of High Mowing, about the history of the Temple-Wilton Community Farm (the oldest continually-running CSA in America) and how the acquisition and conservation of 90+ acres of pristine wilderness will add to the vitality of Abbot Hill.

How did your story in Wilton start? When did you come to the area and why?

Geology: Observing our World

students repair a wall along Isaac Frye Highway as part of their geology block

How easy it is not to really notice that which is most familiar to us. How often do we stop and observe the very rocks and dirt that we step on every day? Each fall our freshmen spend four weeks observing the landscape around us and, in so doing, discover just how much we never really noticed. With Brad Miller and myself they are studying the ground upon which they walk every day.

This block began with an orientation trip to Jefferson in the White Mountains where the students took two hikes to elevations that provided panoramic landscape views. The students observed those beautiful views …
