Meadow Croft’s heirloom garden is in need of some hands to dig in the dirt. The garden is a replica of the original colonial Revival garden dating back to the early 1900’s. Our new master gardener, Anne Soper, has been hard at work getting the heirloom garden ready for the season, but she can’t do it alone! If you can spare some time and muscle, please call Anne at 631-363-4731.
