We are entering our 17th season stewarding the beautiful gardens and homestead of Bernard McLaughlin in the Oxford Hills region of Western Maine.
Throughout the past 14 years with the Garden & Homestead, Kristin's passion and commitment shines through the entire collection. From our famous lilacs, to beekeeping, to the working dye garden, Kristin is always busy. She also offers her time and expertise to tours, educational classes and the annual plant sales. Drop by and say hello!
