Our goal at the McFaddin-Ward House is to teach how easy gardening can be. We hope to inspire others to start their own gardens, and to instill a love of nature and conservation in the hearts of the children that participate in the program. We adopted a "lasagna" gardening method and maintain the project free of pesticides and chemicals.

The 4-bed Victory Garden, which is part of its education program, is supervised by staffer, Carol Cuccio. She has gardened her whole life has a real passion for teaching others to grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs.

To learn more, or to get involved with this fulfilling project, contact us at (409) 832-1906 or email ccuccio@mcfaddin-ward.org.

Azaleas are beginning to bloom

While we are working to get the garden beds ready for the first plantings, the azaleas on our yards are beginning their blooms. A gorgeous dark pink. What a beautiful flush of color.
We welcome people to come onto the yard (check at the visitor center first) to snap photos for personal use (no professionals and only walking on the grass and sidewalks).

Carol Cuccio, our education assistant, has been busy organizing, planning, staffing, and conjoling to get our four garden beds up and running.

Check in to watch our progress.
