Nest — Spring 2015 


In this spring issue of Nest, we’re thinking about more than just spring cleaning. Now that the snow is melting and we can finally see the ground, it’s Vermont's busiest season of the year for home buying and selling. If you’re in the market for new digs in Burlington, read “’Hood, Sweet ’Hood,” our handy home buyers' guide to the city — broken down by neighborhood.

Or perhaps you’re looking for someplace a little more rural. In “Village Greens,” we take a look at “agrihoods” — back-to-the-land-style developments offering residents edible landscapes as well as tight-knit communities. Just looking to get back to your garden — or start one indoors? Check out “High Hopes,” our easy DIY tutorial for making your own space-saving vertical garden at home.

No question, spring is the time to get outside. The Vermont Cedar Chair Company makes outdoor lounging extra comfy with its uniquely handcrafted outdoor rockers — read about ’em in “Seat Filler.”

Finally, starting this issue, we're taking home tours! Feast your eyes on “Lofty Ambitions,” where we walk you through an innovative loft-style home above a Rochester art gallery. Know a space we should feature next? Email us at

    Going to the movies can be a passive activity: Buy a ticket, be seated and be entertained. But for more than three decades, the Vermont International Film Festival has used the cinematic arts to spark community conversation. This year's lineup showcases films from all over the world addressing hard-hitting, timely subjects, including refugee and LGBT issues. Among the highlights are Microbe and Gasoline, in which two young friends travel across France in a homemade vehicle; Miss Sharon Jones!, a documentary chronicling the soul singer's courageous battle with cancer; and Tanna, a fascinating story of star-crossed lovers on a remote Pacific island. So sit back, relax and enjoy the shows — then stick around to chat with filmmakers and fellow theatergoers.
