Notes:
This is a farm of woods, hills, and fields. Here, nature is free to spread itself with a light touch. The owners, early on, gave up the concept of controlling Mother Nature. In the process of learning about their land, their methods have become more organic and they have been less willing to use herbicides and chemical fertilizers. In the end, they say that they are glad to have given up their early dreams of formal gardens.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Kennedy (former owners, 1937); Dr. and Mrs. Rudolph Light (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Albert Johnson (former owners, 1960-1979); and Carolyn Sartor (landscape architect, 1985).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, garden plans, and copy of magazine article.
