Make Much Ado About Madoo All Weekend Long!
The Madoo Conservancy will host the Sixth Annual Much Ado About Madoo from Friday, June 17th through Saturday, June 18th. This year, Madoo is celebrating 50 years of organic gardening, marking year when Robert Dash signed his name to the deed for Madoo. As Dash describes it in A Walk Through Madoo, he bought “an eighteenth century hay barn sailing above a hedgerow, in from Main Street Sagaponack.” In 1967, Bob moved in and began making the garden he called Madoo.
