September 2008 - Horticulture Study Group

Tour of 'Turkey Brook Farm' Ecological Gardening Site in Spencer, MA

25 Acton Garden Club members met in the garden of Ellen and Robert Sousa. They have created an ecological garden, a place where they find great enjoyment in growing shrubs, trees and plants suited to the natural habitat of New England. The soil is fertilized naturally with added compost from their farm animals (two horses). This is a place where butterflies find a place to land, pollinators come to do their job and bees and birds of different plumage are attracted to make a nest. Ellen is a certified Naturalist, by New England Wildflower Society.
