SHLT has been working to protect the special places of South Hero since 1997.  The first project, and catalyst for the formation of SHLT, was the conservation of over 300 acres of Vermont ‘s oldest commercial apple orchard, Allenholm Farm.  Since that first project, SHLT has become an important community resource and has garnered the support of over 600 members and worked to protect over 1,500 acres of land in South Hero.  The mission of SHLT is protecting the farmland, woodland, natural and recreational areas, and open spaces which help give South Hero its distinctive quality of life.
