    Garden #3 The Bowker Horticultural Society Garden, E. Sandwich, MA
    Tip Talk Topic: Reclaiming your yard from invasive plants and enhancing your marriage through vegetable gardening. Mary and Roger Bowker, both Master Gardeners, purchased their historic former dairy farm in 2001 and have spent the last 19 years rescuing 15 acres from invasive plants. On four acres, they have created garden rooms around a gazebo and pergola dotted with hydrangeas and statuary. There is a formal herb garden, and orchard and serene landscapes. They enjoy their extensive vegetable patch where he, an avowed carnivore and she, and enthusiastic aficionado of all things green and edible, happily work side by side, hoes in hand, experimenting with fruits and vegetables.
