Heronswood Voice Moves to Native American Tribe

by George Ball

Dear Heronswood Customer and “Heronswood Voice” Reader,

Last summer we sold Heronswood Nursery and Gardens to the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe. Thus, the first Native American botanical garden in the US began its existence on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State. Therefore we are donating this, the Heronswood Voice blog, to the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe. In order for you to continue to receive this blog, you will need to, please, change your bookmarks and/or favorites function, in order to “re-subscribe” to the new Heronswood Voice.

If you enjoyed the former Heronswood Voice, you might wish to subscribe also to Fordhook Voice. I shall be writing from now on over there. I shall concentrate on the same general subject of gardening and its social and cultural contexts. Nick Rhodehamel will continue to write “guest” articles. Our focus will be Fordhook Farm and the Burpee Company, the former owner of Heronswood. The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe has great plans for the future of the uniquely beautiful Heronswood Gardens. Please subscribe to their new blog.

Thanks very much for reading Heronswood Voice. I hope for nothing but the best for the PGST. Also, I wish you the greatest success in your own garden or community garden and, finally, look forward to future responses over at Fordhook Voice.


George Ball

    Looking forward to this new chapter. Heronswood sounded great, almost mecca like for the ideal climate, but wasn’t relevant for someone gardening on the east coast. Coming from England, it was a shock to garden in Virginia, completely different. I’m look forward to reading more about Fordhook after your last post. Hopefully, I catch the next open house, any idea when?

    Ok, so I’m confused are you still writing to us on our email you have now?

  5. Philosophy, like art and good music, has a place in every garden. Mr. Ball continues to fill the gardens in my mind with his. For this I am thankful.
