Place:
Company Farm (Pottstown, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Pottstown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, copies of photographs, copy of Pennsylvania Historic Resource Survey form, copies of public sale announcements, 1843 property inventory, 1754 deed, and garden plan.
General:
The property, being primarily a farm, had a relatively simple garden behind the house except for more sophisticated landscaping by the former owners of the Tudor-style house. Historically, there has been a strong connection of the property to the old Schuylkill Canal. In the early 19th century, the farm was used to raise mules needed to pull the barges from upstate Pennsylvania to Philadelphia. The present owners wished to emphasize the natural landscape. A pond is fed from run-off from a spring. Rhododendrons are interspersed with grassy areas and stone walls. A trip to a Japanese garden, designed by Kobori Enshu, inspired the owners to recreate it using stones to represent cranes and a small central peninsula representing the island of eternal youth. A later trip to Thailand inspired the garden's Thai Spirit House. The garden has been used for Thai students to perform dances, for weddings, and as a gathering place for Easter sunrise services and garden tours.
Special appreciation for the owners' children's hard work is shown by placing bronze statues in special garden settings. "Celebration," by L'Deane Trueblood (1999), is dancing in a large oval garden. The bronze statue, "Wings," by Gary Price (1996), stands on a high rock depicting a young boy launching his model plane. "Child of Peace," by Edward Fenno Hoffman III. (1960), depicts a boy cuddling a dove. "Garden Chimes," by Val Bertoia (2000), represents the gardener's love for music.
Persons associated with the garden include: Thomas and Richard Penn (patent owners, 1754); James and John Ingles (former owners, 1754-1806); Christian and Daniel Beary (former owners, 1806-1836); Eli Harley (1836-1844); John Reifsnyder (former owner, 1844-1847); Schuylkill Navigation Company (former owner, 1847-1896); Reading Railroad (former owners, 1896-1914); Joseph Elwood Reitenbaugh (former owner, 1914-1928); Anthony N. Bullock (former owner, 1928-1934); G. Clymer Brooke (former owner, 1934-1945); Claude and Minnie Shelton (former owners, 1945-1970); and Robert Clevenger (former owner, 1970).

Place:
Spiral of Life Gardens (Middletown, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Middlesex County -- Middletown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
General:
The Spiral of Life Gardens is transformative in many senses. What was once an ordinary one-acre suburban lot with lawn, shrubs and a dogwood tree now has about 120 native plants in free-form garden beds and habitats, and learning stations for the classes that visit. The owner and designer of the garden drew on concerns about the environment and her own spiritual convictions when she began the transformation by creating a sacred universe garden in a spiral directly behind the house that has a honeysuckle bush and birdbath at its center and native purple flowers including coneflower, false indigo and bee balm along with inspirational messages posted beside the pathway. Irregularly-shaped beds throughout the property are connected by grass paths and each is named for a particular function or concept, such as invitation, Zen, butterfly, peace, rain, and memorial. The plot is bordered on one side by land trust woodlands that, along with the garden's planted habitat edges, provide food and cover for wildlife. According to Vivian Felton, a conservationist with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service and local contact for its Ecological Landscaping Network, the garden reflects three themes: environmental awareness, diversity of plantings for wildlife conservation, and spiritual experience.
In 2006 the Spiral of Life garden was approved as an educational site for the New England Wildflower Society which holds programs each June on the property. Also starting in 2006 Connecticut wildlife biologist Peter Picone has been convening educational programs in the Spiral of Life garden. The Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District cited the owner with a special merit award on October 18, 2008. Water conservation is achieved by the use of rain barrels to collect roof runoff and the use of permeable surfaces for the driveway and walkways. The garden has been open for visitors and students interested in its spiritual and ecological qualities.
The Peace Garden features a large sphere painted to resemble the earth as it is seen from space, which was sculpted by Kim Kuzina. The sphere is surrounded by rock compositions based on the Inuit peoples' inukshuks, which are used as navigational aids to good fishing holes.
Persons associated with the garden include Hazel G. and William C. White (former owners of property, prior to 1958); John L. Skinner (former owner, circa 1958-1965); Kim Kuzina (sculptor of "Peace" sphere, 2003); Vivian Felten (USDA Natural Resource Conservationist, 2003); Greg Lowenberg (New England Wildflower Society Educator, 2006); Peter Picone (Connecticut wildlife biologist, 2006-2009).
