Mountain Homesteaders News & Updates
On May 1 a group of five managers with the Atlantic Coast Pipeline spoke to Wintergreen residents in a broadcast via phone about the upcoming construction work to install the high-pressure gas line at our entryway.
The Wintergreen Mountain Homesteaders' Saturday night event (April 28) at the Nature Foundation's Trillium House started with prosecco, and was followed by antipasto, focaccia, lasagna, salad, and canolis. Italian red and white wines flowed.

In 2017 the Wintergreen Fire Department created a new level of volunteer for the operation and the response was impressive. There are twelve new volunteers from the valley. There is an effort now to recruit mountain residents into the program.
Wintergreen Police has appointed Jeff Harris as its first Community Services Officer. "With over 28 years of experience and service to our community, CSO Harris brings a familiar face and a rich knowledge of our community’s history and traditions," said Dennis N. Russell, Chief of Wintergreen Police.
There is a difference and it's important.
"The Wintergreen Property Owners Association (WPOA), while opposed to the location of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, understands and abides by the legal process that has led to the commencement of tree removal on WPOA property. While disappointed, the beginning of construction only increases our resolve to hold Dominion accountable for the financial and non-financial implications placed on our community by the presence of the pipeline. WPOA is committed to the best possible outcome for our community; one that provides fair treatment and security for our owners, employees, and guests."
"The courts do not allow Wintergreen Police to choose which laws to enforce."
