I got to teach at one of my very favorite places today, The Old Manse. Such a special property cared for by @thetrustees and a place dear to my heart since it's where I was married. In a back room of this historic old house we talked about and experienced different kinds of teas and tea brewing methods. Thanks for having me, #oldmanse , and hope to be back again in the summer! 🌿

From The Old Manse in Concord, to the William Cullen Bryant Homestead in Cummington, to Naumkeag in Stockbridge, generations of writers and artists have found the spark of inspiration at Trustees' special places. Celebrate this rich literary history and discover how it can inspire your creative spirit during this year's Home Sweet Home on Saturday May 20.

Clockwise from left:

Naumkeag, Stockbridge
Naumkeag was the Native American name for Salem, Massachusetts, where Joseph Choate was born. Choate graduated from Harvard Law School and moved to New York City where he quickly rose to prominence. During his illustrious legal career, Choate was the premier courtroom lawyer, arguing cases in front of the Supreme Court. In 1899,Choate was appointed by President McKinley to be the Ambassador to the United Kingdom. Caroline Choate was a trained artist interested in women’s education, co-founding Barnard College.

The Old Manse, Concord
Nathaniel Hawthorne and his wife, Sophia, started their married life at The Old Manse, and you can still see the poems they wrote to each other, etched on the Manse’s window panes.

William Cullen Bryant Homestead, Cummington
William Cullen Bryant’s verse celebrates much of Massachusetts' quintessential American landscape, including his own Homestead in Cummington, and Monument Mountain in Great Barrington (pictured), and helped inspire the 19th-century land conservation movement that involved Frederic Law Olmsted and Charles Eliot, founder of The Trustees.

#TBT Dig It! The Trustees has 72 archaeological sites on its properties. We take care of not only what is above ground, but below ground too. This week the Archives & Research Center got a delivery–26 boxes from one of the most exciting archaeological digs at the Old Manse in the 1990s!
At the Old Manse, archaeologists from UMass Boston unearthed 19th and early 20th century trash piles near the barn and shay shed. It sounds gross, but as they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure! Trash dumps can help us understand the day-to-day lives of the people who have lived at the Old Manse for centuries.
This fabulous image is by Melody Henkel from UMASS Boston, 2017: While excavating, most of what archaeologists find is pottery fragments, called “sherds”. This pottery represents a small fraction of the sherds that were found at the Old Manse, but reveals the different types and styles of mugs, bowls, and serving dishes that people enjoyed in the 19th century.

Dearest Friends, we have 💗🍃Huge News🍃💗 to share with you!

During the last two years we have been working our tails off to nurture a sweet little piece of Dracut, MA into a magical haven rich with color, sustenance, and love. Throughout the months we've seen our farm transform from a frozen snowdrift to a bare field filled with empty beds and so many square feet of possibility. We've sowed thousands of seeds and transplanted tray after tray of green seedlings. As the springs unfurled into summers we watched leaves outstretch and flowers turn their petals toward the sun. A million weeds came and went. Friends worked with us, making their hands dirty and tired and delighted with the beauty of work and devotion. In the fall we dug long lengths of roots and tucked fat cloves of garlic and flower bulbs into the generous earth. Each winter granted us rest as we dreamed in starry nights of the sunlight to come.

In this, our third winter since the creation of our beloved farm, we are delighted, blessed, and unbelievably happy to announce that we are moving our operation to @thetrustees Bradley Estate in Canton, MA. While our piece of land in Dracut has been better to us than we could have ever imagined we are ready to be growing our herbs so much closer to our home and community. The massive reduction in our commute is going to allow us to devote more time than ever to our passion: growing the most delicious, aromatic, and healing plants that we can muster. We are thrilled and honored to do this in partnership with The Trustees of Reservations, an amazing organization which works tirelessly to foster and promote homegrown agriculture while protecting some of the most venerable properties in Massachusetts, including Emerson's #OldManse .

As we all make our way into this brand new year and brave new world you can count on us to do all that we can to provide you with what we hope are the most vibrant plants you could dream of, now in a place that will make it easier than ever to gather and share in our love of this one precious life. See you just outside of town, friends!
