Stuck in Vermont: Exploring Ken Mills’ Secret Sculpture Garden

Episode 693


Published June 29, 2023 at 7:30 a.m.

Ken Mills bought his 1770s home in northern Chittenden County 25 years ago. Mills has worked as a landscape architect for two decades, while also cultivating the acre and a half of outdoor space behind his home. Called Studio JuJu, the elaborate parklike area includes a screened-in waterfall and koi pond, massive ornate doors, metal sculptures galore, a stone labyrinth, and an iron bridge. Mills has welcomed a variety of groups to his sculpture garden for meditation retreats and musical performances. He also runs a short-term rental and shares his whimsical space with guests.

Seven Days senior multimedia producer Eva Sollberger got a tour of Mills’ secret garden for her latest episode of “Stuck in Vermont.”
