“I retired from the Commonwealth after 29 years of doing three different historic sites. This [Old Economy] was my third, and last one. I’ve been retired for 12 years now, but I practically live here. I’ve been doing the baker house garden since 1987. And I’ll tell ya, gardener’s are a tough lot. We get a lot of retired schoolteachers as volunteers. As you can see [points to some overgrowth near the statue], we can use more help. Anyone can do it! Just call 266-4500 and talk to Sandy Carroll, the volunteer coordinator. We’d love to see more gardeners here.”
