  • 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.

    Gingkos also known as the maidenhair tree, are the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct. It is found in fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated and was introduced early to human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food. The genus name Ginkgo is regarded as a misspelling of the Japanese gin kyo, “silver apricot.’

Oh, yes…and we’ve started a top-to-bottom restoration of the summer house and studio.
