Woodshop Grounds

Woodshop Grounds

Boonville, CA
Open Days

My grandfather got me started in his vegetable garden when I was a boy, and while continuing that I have also become interested in flowers. I discovered organic gardening when I was in junior high in Ohio and I was considered to be somewhat weird then - not so today. I have been a studio furniture maker all my working life, and the garden makes a wonderful setting for my shop and showroom. I have made garden furniture from reclaimed redwood as well as some concrete planters and border walls. I try to have something always blooming, and there will be a lot in June including Phlox, Crocosmia, Campanula, Lychnis, Heuchera, and more. My file folder of plants is over two and a half inches thick and growing.

Directions: Take US 101 north from San Francisco to Cloverdale and Ca. 128 northwest to Boonville, about 35 miles. There is parking along the highway in front of the house, and a walk-in gate just to the left of the sign,"Mcfadden furniture showroom."
