Daytripping in Maine
Farms & Gardens to Visit This Summer
Everything you ever wanted to know about herbs, you can learn this summer--whether at Avena Botanicals, Stony Brook Herb Farm, Snakeroot Organic Farm or some of the other farms and gardens that are open for visits. Interested in landscape design? The Brooksville Garden Tour and Georges River Land Trust Garden Tour both feature gardens that are not only productive but are spectacular aesthetically. Want to know how to grow your vegetables better, maybe with compost that contains no animal manures, or with manure tea used to help fight diseases? Visit either Khadigar or WoodPrairie Farm.
The gardens listed below vary: Most are organic, some are not; some are commercial, while some are homesteads. Most have scheduled a specific time for visits. Just follow the directions--the DeLorme Maine Atlas and Gazetteer is helpful--and find out how others cultivate their food, flowers, trees, landscapes, lives. Please leave your dog at home.
We welcome suggestions for the 2001 Daytripping listing. Please send your name or the name of a gardener or farmer whom you think should be listed to: Jean English, Editor, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener, Lincolnville ME 04849; email@example.com. Thanks!

This year Stony Brook will have almost an acre of beautiful gardens and herbs all in organic cultivation. The Nelsons have recently renovated their 100-year-old barn to make two classroom spaces, a lab, and an herbal drying facility.
- A full schedule of classes is offered, featuring several well-known herbalists from around the state. The Nelsons’ deep desire is to teach others to strengthen their connection with the earth and to empower themselves with the ancient wisdoms of healing, nurturing, self-sufficiency and survival skills. They stress hands-on teaching.

The Georges River Land Trust 9th Annual Tour, Gardens in the Watershed
- is a major fundraiser for this group, whose mission is to conserve and protect the long watershed of the Georges River. It includes the following gardens:
- At the Appleton Ridge Road gardens of Brad and Abbie Read, shrubs and perennials are planted in 18 concentric circles in a field overlooking the Georges River valley. Annuals have their own plot, with color combinations changing each year. Fruit trees are espaliered along a fence, behind which vegetables are grown in raised beds. The different areas demonstrate the skills the Reads bring to their design company, ARTgardens, and visitors to the site will find potted perennials on sale the day of the tour.
- In South Hope, Elliot Mitchell is in charge of the rock and wood structures that define the garden areas he and his wife, Jane, have created. A combination of perennials, annuals and wildflowers grows among rock walls and along paths, which lead through trellises and into secret nooks. Many of the perennials are the old-fashioned favorites--phlox, daylilies, poppies, hollyhocks and an array of brilliant foxglove, which owe their size to regular helpings of manure tea. Elliot’s most recent addition to the garden is a giant trellis, planted with clematis and roses, which leads visitors into the area planted with vegetables and fruit trees.
- The Appleton property of Cheryl Denz and Manette Pottle is their home and the site for their landscaping business. The circa 1760 house was surrounded by Japanese knotweed, the barn engulfed in brambles, and the orchard choked by volunteer pine and cherry seedlings when they bought the place in 1996. Now it is cleared, and the front garden holds both experimental new plants and old-fashioned favorites. It also houses garden sculpture created out of found objects--old farm equipment, flea market furniture, cast-off children’s toys. Behind the house is a vegetable garden in the form of the traditional potager.
- is a small-scale goat farm and dairy where Brad and Caitlin Hunter grow flowers and organic vegetables, including many heirloom varieties. Brad, a home brewer, has included in the garden two essential ingredients for beer and wine--hops and grapes. A collection of bird houses surrounds the traditional cottage garden, where the Hunters grow edible flowers and herbs to use in the farm’s goat cheeses, and a path through the garden leads to the barn, where visitors can see the goats.
- Thomas Hepp and Cheri Johnson began LiQWood Gardens in Liberty in 1986 with 10 acres that were once part of a large Maine farm. They have since added 32 more acres and are in the process of restoring a neglected apple orchard. Hepp has built a Japanese inspired summer house and water garden on the property and has carved out 3 miles of trails that wind through the woods and open fields.
- Claire Powell’s Farmhouse Herbs and Dried Flowers in Appleton includes a wooded hillside and field, a perennial stream, ancient boundary trees and a fine, old, flowering crabapple. The gardens, with herbs, flowers, shrubs, roses and climbing vines, are on the southeast slope, overlooking the Georges River valley. Claire’s interest in herbs has led her to grow many that can be dried, shaped into wreaths and swags or arranged in baskets to sell at craft fairs.
- Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the tour. They are available at The Personal Bookshop, Thomaston; The Fertile Mind, Belfast; Planet, Camden; Cricket on the Common, Union; The Reading Corner, Rockland; or from the Georges River Land Trust office. They will also be sold on the day of the tour at each garden site for $15. Children under 12 will be admitted free. Maps and brochures about the gardens and forms for ordering lunches to be delivered to one of the gardens are available without charge at the above ticket locations.
- Date: Sunday, July 16, 10 to 5, rain or shine.
- Address: Eliza Bailey, Georges River Land Trust, 328 Main St., Suite 206, Rockland ME 04841. Tel. 594-5166.
