Spring Garden Volunteer Work Week

Join us in the mountains, for a few days of fun in the garden, leading up to our Garden Party.  We're looking for volunteers to spend a few days with us between May 20 - 25, we'd love to have you here for that entire period or just part of it. We'll be planting trees, sprucing up the gardens, and prepping for the party.  MTA will provide overnight lodging in exchange for four hours of work exchange per day. In the evenings we'll enjoy communal dinners and late-night campfires.  Contact Helene Lesterlin, our Director of Programs for more information.

"Mount Tremper Arts has become a quietly thriving offshoot of the city’s contemporary performance world: a magnet for adventurous urban artists and a devoted local audience." Read more here.

Contributing to a vibrant and healthy local economy for the Catskills region is a vital goal for us here at Mount Tremper Arts. Through an internationally significant contemporary arts festival, now in its eighth year, we’re helping to revive the region’s historical role as an exciting tourism destination within easy reach of New York City. We’re one part in a chain of interlinked small businesses making the Catskills a fantastic place to live and visit. These businesses are part of that chain, and are generously supporting the 2015 Summer Festival. Help support MTA by shopping with them. Thank you, Business Sponsors!
