To walk with Master Gardener Michael Nerrie through his Distant Hill Gardens and Nature Trails in Walpole, NH is an uplifting and inspiring experience.  His gardens keep tempo with the seasonal changes, enhancing the landscape with new shapes and textures.  The carefully carved paths through fen and forest ignite the mind with curiosity about the harmony nature plays between plants and the environment.  Visitors are inspired to think about what can be learned from observing the plants.

There has been a renewed interest in home gardening and food preservation this summer. Growing and preserving your own food lets you enjoy delicious, locally grown fruits and vegetables throughout the year. Even if you do not have time or land to grow your own food, local farmers offer a wide variety of high-quality vegetables and fruit at farm stores, roadside stands, farmers markets, and pick-your-own operations. Ask your local farmer about buying a larger quantity of vegetables or fruit to meet your home food preservation needs and desires.
