The new Robert Dash Greenhouse
Many thanks to our donors who made our new greenhouse a reality.
We raised over $28,000 to rebuild the greenhouse at Madoo. The old one, often likened to a carbuncle, has been replaced with a state-of-the-art structure with automatic window vents and efficient heating. Come late February we’ll be planting tomato seedlings for summer harvest.
Did you Know?
The dried seed heads of teasels (Dipascus fullinum) are used to comb fine cashmere? When the teasel heads are wet, they become flexible and the hooked ends gently tease out and align the cashmere fibers to produce the characteristic ripple finish.
by Alejandro Saralegui,
I find myself writing this letter to you with particularly hopeful thoughts. The world around us may be bleak but here at Madoo we have much to be thankful for and many great plans for the future. During our on-site board retreat this past fall, we came up with a new way for visitors to experience Madoo. We are going to create a half dozen or so new mini-guides of Madoo with abbreviated tours of the garden that have a purpose. Looking for peace and solace? We might suggest you go to the the hermit’s hut and meditate. Wanting to unleash your creative side? Why not take a stroll to the Asian pond garden and sketch? We’ll provide the pencils and paper. We hope these new maps will bring the power of Madoo into our daily lives.
