We have added organic and natural gardens here at the Silas Griffith Inn and grow many of our own vegetables, berries and apples. Our 10 acre property includes walking paths along pesticide-free fields and meadows. We are home to a variety of wildlife from chipmunks to pheasants, wild turkeys to deer and the occasional moose.
We purchased the Inn in December 2005 and have been restoring it ever since, including restoring the gardens and lands. In the process of the garden restoration we discovered several endangered species including Jack-in-the-Pulpit and Trillium, which are continuing to protect and let flourish. We have brought the heirloom apple trees back to production with lots of TLC and make our own crab apple, mint-apple and apple-pie preserves.
We have transferred most of our lighting to CFLs, including the outdoor spotlights. We have upgraded our seasonal lighting to LEDs.
