 My husband and I moved to our Pepperell home with a blank canvas 7 years ago slowly designing, learning and creating what we call,  Slo Poke Farm.  The dream is to behold the beauty of God’s Creation-everywhere your eyes turn.  We have a new addition- my husband planned and built a small greenhouse (almost finished), made from recycled windows and wood, as a potting shed and to help with starting seeds.

Please park down below by the first house- 23 Main St. Don’t block drive. Then walk up to her place.
Also Joyce has asked that we leave by noon as she has another engagement to attend.
Carol Canning stated,” it’s a hidden gem!”  Here is a description of her place.

“Over the last 10 plus years we have focused on developing the beds into strolling gardens comprised of conifers, dwarf conifers, heaths, heathers, junipers, ground covers, succulents, Japanese maples, hostas, dogwoods, various hydrangeas, heucheras, grasses, and other assorted perennial shrubs and plants. I guess one could say that my style is a bit eclectic in that it really doesn’t follow any particular school or style of gardens. Much of the property was a blank slate. We often rode our horses around the perimeter and through the back woods where we had established some short trails. I am a very intuitive creature, and an observer of nature and the elements around me. I focus on what works and what doesn’t. My belief is to not fight Mother Nature, but to let her guide us in supplementing and complimenting what is here, what works, and what this particular location allows to put down roots, grow, and shower us with happy plantings.”
