Good Dogs Farm in Ashley Falls, MA

There are Garden Conservancy Open Days tours this Saturday in Dutchess County and on Sunday in northern Litchfield and southern Berkshire Counties. Maria Nation’s Good Dogs Farm in Ashley Falls has become a popular spot because it is a reflection of Maria’s exuberant personality and belief that anything is possible. It is the creation of a fearless and enthusiastic self-taught gardener and it is always evolving. One constant is her free-standing sleeping porch—you might classify as a folly (Maria calls it “the yurt”) except for the fact that Maria actually uses it all summer long.
