Latest News 

  Our meadow tour on 9/16 last weekend, sponsored by the Franklin County Conservation District was a rousing success! So much so that our stock is depleted and we have decided to shut down regular business our for the season.  We still have plants (See Our Plants  for updated list.) We are also  happy to meet people by appointment. Thank you all for supporting our first store season. Will be back next year with more stock and new plants. 

The store is built!

 Our plants are out front and better organized by sun/ shade/ wet /dry preferences.  We also have meat, produce and baked goods

This is a piece of the blueberry crumb pie we carry, baked by North River Bakery in Vermont.  It is the BEST pie
I have tasted and I have tasted all the local pie.  If you don't agree,  I will give you a free Arrowhead rattlebox, an annual that makes yellow flowers and a charming rattly seed box. You should plant it in a sunny place, and ponder your poor taste in pastry.

Elm leaf goldenrod radiates its golden clusters of flowers from the center.  It spreads by seed rather than rhizome which makes is well-behaved in the garden. Grows well in sun/ part-sun in all kinds of soil.
