THANKS FOR A GREAT 2014 MUCH ADO ABOUT MADOO!

MADOO DOVE PIN/STOCKING STUFFER

A striking resemblance between Orchard by J. Mavec’s own dove jewelry collection and Bob’s drawing of the Madoo dove led jewelry designer Janet Mavec to create the golden Madoo lapel pin for the benefit of Madoo.
Orchard by Janet Mavec features intimate, exquisitely crafted designs with a touch of humor, born out of the splendor of her own organic gardens.
$45.00 in matte antique gold/brass, ¾" wide.
Order here!

GREENHOUSE REPLACEMENT CAMPAIGN

We are planning on replacing the greenhouse that has served us well over the years. However, a lack of heating in the winter, and ventilation in the summer makes it virtually impossible to grow anything in here! Not to mention that if Charles, The Prince of Wales, ever visits he’ll declare it a carbuncle!
Please consider making a donation to Madoo in support of the Robert Dash Greenhouse.
Growing transplants from seed in the spring, sheltering tender plants in the winter and teaching children horticulture year-round certainly make this a worthwhile project.
If you wish more information on this effort please contact alejandro@madoo.org.
