Finderne House (Oldwick, New Jersey)
This site is noted for its fenced vegetable garden, with two plantings per year. The vegetables are closely planted in a geometrical scheme, and are complemented by garden borders and fruit trees, such as apples and pears. Lavender edging, morning glories climbing back porch posts, and a colonial picket fence complete the design.
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of articles about the garden, and additional information.
