A visit to The Dudley Farm Museum is a step back in time,
a rural retreat from the past, preserved for the future.

The Dudley Farm Garden Group
Second Tuesday of each month at The Dudley Farm Munger Barn, lower level, 7 to 8:30 PM
Next Meeting: January 13th
Please note: The January 13th Dudley Farm Organic Garden Group meeting has been changed to St. John’s Church, 129 Ledge Hill Rd, North Guilford due to possible icing conditions in the farm parking lot. As usual it will meet from 7 to 8:30 PM. For further information call 203–457–1643 before 6 PM on the 13th.

Starting on July 8th, 2014, The Dudley Farm Museum will sponsor a garden discussion group focused on growing organic edibles—vegetables, herbs and flowers. This will be an informal group allowing the participants to share knowledge and ideas about organic methods and successful plants for this area.

Possible discussion topics include insect and disease control, starting a fall and winter garden, soil improvement, encouraging beneficial insects and plants, good recipes, composting, etc.

The Dudley Farm Community Garden will provide an opportunity for participants to see firsthand some of the methods and results of organic gardening and to talk to some gardeners about their experiences there. We have many very knowledgeable gardeners including several Master Gardeners.

The group is open to the public and—like the Dudley Farm—not limited to Guilford residents. No prior gardening experience is necessary. Feel free to bring a brown bag dinner. There is no charge. For more information call the office 203-457-0770 and leave a message for Judy Stone, Dudley Farm Community Garden Coordinator.

The Big Barn Project (BBP)
The life and history of each farm revolves around its main barn. That’s where the animals are housed, the equipment is kept and the history of the farm is preserved. At the Dudley Farm Museum, the up to now, un-restored big gray barn, will now take on this important role.
