Because the winter has been so long and spring so delayed the garden and will open on Friday, May 3.
There has been much interest in an autumn workshop and we are going to hold one. For economic reasons it will be but a one day affair. The morning held here at North Hill with Joe Eck and John Thayer discussing autumn bulbs and preparing spring bulbs for display. There will be a vinous lunch and we will then travel to Walker Farm for a view of the autumn crops, the winter crops and all the joys of gardening that can come to us with a little effort.
The workshop will take place 9/29/2012 from 10am to 4pm. The cost will be $175 and checks and registrations may be sent to North Hill PO Box 178 Readsboro, VT 05350.
A few select vendors will be in attendance offering rare bulbs.
We would like to do a workshop in Autumn on the Autumn garden and autumnal food. Sadly Fergus cannot attend. But Jack Manix, the owner of Walker Farm the largest organic farm in Vermont, has agreed to join us. Beatrice Tosti Di Valminuta will be with us also. Talking about cooking and cooking for us. I too will have a few things to say. The workshop will last two days. If any of you are interested please contact us for we cannot schedule the workshop until we are sure there is interest. Our thoughts were that it would take place the first or second weekend of October.
The 2012 Sympossium was a tremendous successs despite the slides being washed out by the sunlight. All our speakers were stellar. And just listening to their voices was enough.
However we have decided to return to Mount Snow despite its commercial ambience. The slides there will be splendid, it will air conditioned and the room are inexpensive. We promise you a fine lunch.
