Plant Walks and Demonstration Gardens

We, the new generation of Golden Bough Tree Farm, are inspired to find ways that humans can learn about plants, both cultivated and wild, as a means to better care for the Earth. We intend to create permaculture demonstration gardens, employing simple, effective methods of working with Nature to create abundance.

Learning to see and interact with Nature in a gentle and thoughtful way, makes us instruments of wildness. Planting even a few Cedars or a single Silver Maple in our yards creates habitat for migratory birds, a refuge for wildlife and a home for pollinators. Every square foot of ground becomes an opportunity to grow a future of beauty and diversity.

Over the almost 50 years of our existence, Golden Bough has become a beautiful arboretum. It is time to open our doors and invite you to come and visit us. During our to-be-scheduled informative plant walks, we will explore our land and the plants that grow here along with their beneficial human uses and roles within an ecosystem.
