Celia Thaxter’s Island Garden Trailer
Celia Thaxter’s unique island garden is not easy to visit on Appledore. Celia Thaxter’s Island Garden is a new Peter Randall film that tells the story of this incredibly talented woman, and offers an upclose look at her garden for those who can’t make the trip.
Where do I find the Peter Randall film on the Island Garden? Are there ever any tours to the island?
Hi Deb — You can purchase the DVD on this website with credit card or paypal Here: https://celiathaxtergarden.com/shop/ or you can visit Discover Portsmouth on Middle Street in downtown Portsmouth NH. There are tours to the island every summer run by the Shoals Marine Lab. They sell out fast. Tours this year are over. Sign up for next year beginning in 2015: https://www.sml.cornell.edu/sml_reservation.php
I am visiting portsmouth during the week of July the fourth 2016. I would love to tour celia thaxter garden.
Hi Peter, The Celia’s Garden film looks just great! What a nice thing to do for folks who can’t get out there. I also took a look at Farming 101. Looks very much like New York State where I grew up and spent summers on my grandfather’s dairy farm in Wyoming County in WNY. Worked hard, milked cows and in return was insulted by them as only a cow can do. Best wishes,Richard
