With the help of Landscape Designer Karen Cummins, they have a gorgeous and productive space encircling their home. Using sustainable and organic gardening practices they produce an enormous amount of fruit and vegetables for themselves and to share.

For our 2019 season we had 14 members open their gardens over 8 weekends. Pretty impressive sharing!
Upon reflection, it seems that folks who were willing to share their gardens with the other members often prefaced that willingness with “my garden isn’t so special” or “I hope it will look good enough”. I was always delighted to tell them there is no standard for the open garden tours. We are all equal in that we are gardeners creating the outdoor sanctuaries that are special for us and our site and all gardens are welcome to be shared.
