“When I was young, with sharper sense,

The farthest insect cry I heard

Could stay me: through the trees, intense,

I watched the hunter and the bird.


“Where is the meaning that I found?

Or was it but a state of mind,

Some old penumbra of the ground,

In which to be but not to find?


“Now summer grasses, brown with heat,

Have crowded sweetness through the air;

The very roadside dust is sweet;

Even the unshadowed earth is fair.


“The soft voice of the nesting dove,

And the dove in soft erratic flight

Like a rapid hand within a glove,

Caress the silence and the light.


“Amid the rubble, the fallen fruit,

Fermenting in its rich decay,

Smears brandy on the trampling boot

And sends it sweeter on its way.”


Yvor Winters

A Garden Sanctuary in Ridgefield, CT.


In this hurried world, the Garden of Ideas is a place to slow down.   To stop, look, and listen.  There is so much more to see, to hear, to smell, to taste, and to feel.    Wake up your senses in this place and become more alive.


Whether you take a self-directed stroll or participate in one of our programs, we hope you will leave renewed.  

Our Farm Stand is fully stocked with produce of the season: asparagus, lettuce, arugula, asian greens, garlic scapes, peas, pea shoots, radishes and more!!!

Eat well!!!http://livepage.apple.com/
