A Day at the McDonough Garden

A Day at Brigham Hill Farm

On May 8, 2017, the club was treated to a program at Shirley and Peter William’s magnificent garden at Brigham Hill Farm. Shirley told us about the history of building the garden and her landscape designer, Warren Leach, gave a spirited presentation outlining some of the design principles that went into the garden. This was followed by a self guided tour of the garden at its peak Spring bloom.
