Our virtual garden tours are enjoyed on mobile phones and home computers by individuals, couples, and families.
We are working towards making our gardens accessible for our local community. If you are interested in learning more or helping with this project by sharing your time, talent, or resources, please contact us!
The MargFMac Front Garden Loop (0.1 mile) provides wheelchair access to seven unique garden areas: The Cut Flower Garden, Orchard Avenue, Fruit and Veggie Garden, Ornamental Tree and Shrub Garden, Raspberry Patch, Cedar Grove and Tunnel and Koi Pond. This accessibility project was completed November, 2011.
The Koi Pond Home Access Trail was our first accessibility project, completed October, 2010.

Voices from Our Community
Karl and Mary,
As a caretaker for my Mom, and Steve’s Mom, and before they died, Steve’s dad, and his Uncle Paul, I want to say thank you for the extraordinary, loving
gift of your garden. It brought me to tears when I clicked on the link and realized what Karl meant when he said he “did a little gardening.”
What open hearted, kind, generous spirits you are. You make me feel braver in this world knowing there are people like you out there.
Thank you – when you tend to your garden, you are tending to so many tired hearts – but I think you know that already. You make this world a better place
and we are grateful for it.
