Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Poke Garden (Marshall, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Fauquier County -- Marshall
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, a garden plan, plant list, articles, and a narrative description of the garden keyed to the individual slides.
General:
The garden is a series of rooms connected through ramps, steps, gates, bridges and paths. The tool shed is placed as the focus at the northern end of the main garden. It closes the blue garden and acts as the passage into the hydrangea gardens as well as the dividing structure between the entrance drive and the vegetable/fruit garden. At the southern end of the blue garden is a belvedere with views over the protected agricultural land that adjoins this garden. Below a stone retaining wall is the bocce lawn with a large bench sitting front of a six foot tall stone wall that acts as a privacy barrier from the country road behind it. At the eastern end of the bocce lawn is a covered gate that takes you up a flight of steps to the diving terrace of the swimming pool. Below the swimming pool wall is the pink garden with herbaceous plantings and "shrubby" structure with four antique apples at the bottom just above the pergola bridge. South from the red garden, you will cross the lower bridge , which takes you through the woodland walk to the shade pond and below that to the sylvan seating of the amphitheatre and up the hill to the millennium garden with a stone obelisk set in a circle of turf, which looks down to a large pond site and above to a wildflower garden. On the north side of the parking court is a stone retaining wall planted with Jasmine nudifolium with mock olive behind it and a hedge of blue spruce. The main drive comes out of this parking court through the rhododendron gardens and back to the front gate.
Person(s) associated with the property include: Dana Scott Westring (landscape designer, 1988-present).

Gregory Lincoln Education Center (Houston, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
16 digital images (2015-2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
Gregory-Lincoln Education Center is a fine arts magnet pre-K through 8th grade school on a 15- acre campus with many low-income and food-insecure students. In the 2011-2012 school year 14 raised gardens beds for vegetables, berries and herbs were installed and planted; the curriculum is called the Cultivated Classroom. Students grow organic food that they prepare and eat while learning about sustainability, science, math, reading, social studies and nutrition. Staple crops include squashes, tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and cauliflower, berries, lettuces, beans and okra, some flowers and herbs. Other vegetables are planted each year on a trial basis. The initial garden has been expanded to include four more raised beds, 20 fruit trees, a chicken coop called The Chick-Inn, a grape arbor at the entrance, and a pollinator garden. The lay-out includes a reading circle, tool shed, compost center, picnic tables, a wash station and benches. Learning about healthy eating is an important aspect of the program, including acquiring food preparation skills for a lifetime, and cooking and learning about careers in the food industry at a nearby restaurant. Helpers in the garden include school staff, Urban Harvest employees, parents, and neighborhood volunteers who participate in a monthly "dig-it" day of weeding, mulching, and additional planting. The Garden Club of Houston supports this program through financial contributions to Urban Harvest, a non-profit that promotes community gardens.
Persons associated with the garden include: Houston Independent School District (owners, 1966- ); Urban Harvest (sponsor, 2011- ); Kellie Karavias (culinary arts teacher, 2011- ); Carol Burton (Urban Harvest coordinator, 2011- ) Names (role and dates of ownership/involvement). Example: Metropolitan District Commission (playground, Victory Garden, 1953- ); City of Cambridge (Morse School, 1953- ); Carl Koch (1912-1998) (architect, 1955); Design Partnership of Cambridge (renovation architects, 1999); Jane Hirschi, Director of City Sprouts (non-profit assisting in creating and maintaining school garden, 2001- ); Patricia Beggy (Morse school principal, 2004- ); Juliet and Gy├Ârgy Kepes (enamel panels artists, 1957); Tomie Arai (silk-screened mural artist, 1999).

Place:
The Whim (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles, historic photographs, and landscape architect's plans, transcripts of interviews, and other information.
General:
The Whim is a seaside New England garden comprised of flower and shrub borders and a sunken quadrangle planted along the foundation walls of demolished greenhouses, with follies, sculptures, steps to the ocean planted with lavender, and swaths of lawn. The walls and privet hedges trimmed to calibrated heights protect the flowers from the salt spray and winds off the ocean while not blocking the view. The 3.4 acre property has other garden areas surrounding the lawns, including a border of bright blue Nikko hydrangeas that are fed aluminum sulfate, a crabapple border, a shed draped with a climbing rose, a secret garden with kousa dogwood and viburnum, and a shady garden walk alongside the house. Garden areas are named for the animal and other sculptures that are featured, including a heron by Walter Matia in the heron quadrangle, eagles at the head of the eagle borders, and rabbits copied from the ones that were at Chateau-sur-Mer, a Newport mansion.
This property was once part of a larger property that had gardens designed by Beatrix Farrand for her aunt, the author Edith Wharton. The Evangeline climbing rose that covers the tool shed was transplanted from the Wharton garden many years ago, and renamed the Miss Newport rose by the owner. Friends and associates have contributed design ideas and artifacts to this garden: the mushroom shaped garden furniture once belonged to a friend, the gazebo was purchased and installed by one of the gardeners, and the steps were fabricated from discarded Newport curbing.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Thayer, (landscape architect, 1968-present); T. J. Brown and Timothy Brown, (gardeners, 1952-present); Anne Baptista (property manager, 1989-present); and Jerica Ford (gardener, 2007-present).

United States of America -- Tennessee -- Davidson County -- Nashville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and garden plans.
General:
Fairbourne, a Tudor style house was built in 1929. When the present owners moved into their new home, twenty-six years ago, no original gardens remained. The location on a corner lot left little privacy. The first project was the construction of a serpentine brick wall for privacy and a brick "dovecote" to house pool equipment and garden tools. These structures provided an ideal backdrop for the development of an extensive perennial garden. The perennial beds and climbing roses dominate in the spring. The ornamental flowering trees, bushes and espalier trees and shrubs (jasmine, plum trees, climbing hydrangea, crab apples and white wisteria) hold the eye during the summer. The variety and juxtaposition of pyramidal trees, round boxwood and burford holly, and a collection of ornamental maple trees kept aggressively pruned, create an "outdoor sculpture" in the fall and winter. The garden is on several levels and planted around several sides of the house, with stone steps and stepping stone paths leading from one "outdoor room" around a corner to another, mirroring the asymmetrical, unpredictable footprint of the house.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Thomas H. Malone (former owner, 1906); Neina B. Bryan (former owner, 1925); Frank P. Bachman (former owner, 1930); Elizabeth B. Hardcastle (former owner, 1955); James Debow Casey (former owner, 1970); Carolyn S. Sartor (landscape architect, 1975); Carol Dixon (garden designer of perennial bed, 1975); and Ben Place (landscape architect, 1978).

Hidden Glen Farms (Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Abington Township -- Meadowbrook
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a copy of the garden plan, and three photos of the original Charles H. Gale installation from ca. 1983 (two of the same view). The garden is noted for its incorporation of colonial (eighteenth-century) design elements in a contemporary setting.
General:
"This garden was designed to enhance an eighteenth-century landscape and house setting. Landscape architect Charles H. Gale, Sr., was inspired by the architectural and horticultural research done at Colonial Williamsburg. He created a half acre of colonial gardens terraced to separate the formal flower and herb garden from the vegetable and fruit garden. The upper tier is in geometric subdivisions using English boxwood to edge and enclose spring bulbs, annuals, biennials, and perennials. Included are lilies, aquilegia, digitalis, delphinium, coreopsis, gallardia, phlox, astilbe, stokesia, Shasta daisies, yarrow, candytuft, alyssum, veronica, comfrey, and medicinal as well as cooking, and sweet-smelling herbs, the latter lining one side of the garden fence.
In each of the four geometric shapes is a five-foot, classical lead statue made in England. . . . The center circle has an eighteenth-century sundial. Fieldstone retaining walls, which contain the hill, and a sitting niche and bench with herbs underfoot utilize eighteenth-century ideas of garden construction. The vegetable and fruit garden, four stone steps down, is bordered on two sides by espaliered dwarf apple trees and grape vines. The small hill on the side of the steps is covered with lilies and strawberries. In one corner the fences join a garden tool house, which has a cedar shingled roof to match the family house and pool house roofs. Williamsburg clay birdhouses hang from one side of this house. The sheep pasture is adjacent to the garden. Fields and lower orchard go behind the garden. The tennis court,pool, woods and creek follow the lawns to the right."
Persons associated with the property include: Fred and Betty Conger (former owners, 1937-1963); Frederick W. G. Peck (landscape designer, 1967); Charles H.Gale (landscape architect, 1982); G. Edwin Brumbaugh (architect, 1937, 1966, 1969); Owen B. Schmidt & Sons (landscape architects, 1968); and John Milner (architect, 1981 and 1989).
