Open Days, Edibles
The Morash Victory Garden has expanded several times during the past thirty years. Today, polypropylene deer fencing protects twenty earthen raised beds that were built on native sandy soils amended generously with local and site-made compost. Benefitting from such strategies as winter cover cropping, grass mulching, plastic sheeting, and clean cultivation, the garden grows the usual suspects found in most backyard vegetable gardens. Potatoes and pumpkins, tomatoes, and cut flowers are important crops. Sufficient water, abundant sunshine, and a hardworking homemade greenhouse, together with countless happy hours from an old gardener, are some of the secret weapons to be found in this vegetable and flower display.
Directions: From town, take Polpis Road past Moor's End Farm to Rabbit Run Road on left. Go 0.7 mile on Rabbit Run, which eventually turns left. Stay right at this fork (you're now on Shawkemo Road) and go straight for a few hundred yards to a driveway on the right and a sign welcoming you to the Morash property. Please park as suggested by the signs.
