The Garden

How old is the garden?

It varies. Some of the gardens are 40 years old, some are 4 minutes!

How large is the garden?

The garden is about four acres of our 76 acre farm. 

When did you come here? 

We bought the farm in 1977. There was no garden so we began one close to the house.

Who helps maintain the garden?

Bill and Dawn are full-time gardeners and appreciate the help of the volunteers.

Who are the Green Thumbers?

The Green Thumbers are a group of volunteers who, in pre-Covid days, worked for two hours in the garden every Wednesday morning before enjoy socialising over lunch.  During Covid-19 times we no longer gather as a large group but arrange individual volunteering times.
