Hello and welcome to Celadon Hill!
My name is Beth Poggioli and Celadon Hill is about doing what you love and loving what you do. Growing beautiful things has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. Working in vegetable gardens with my North Carolina cousins, growing sunflowers in the front yard, germinating seeds in the kitchen window and teaching others as a Master Gardener, I have always been awed at the beauty that emerges from a little water, some light and a lot of love.
My husband Tim and I, along with our four children have lived here in Baldwin, Maryland since 2002. We fell in love with the peaceful pastoral lands that surround this area and the little house on the hill. We started a garden right away and slowly added patch after patch every few years. One of our greatest pleasures is sharing the bounty from our vegetable and flower gardens with friends and family.
I come from a background in small business and seeing the emergence and success of small, sustainable agriculture via the internet and social media was just the push I needed to see my dream become a reality. In January, 2019, Celadon Hill was born!
Our flowers and herbs are started from seed or purchased as seedlings from local vendors. We grow responsibly without chemicals and encourage biodiversity, soil health, and water conservation. We strive for no-till methods using cover crops, heavy doses of compost, pine needles and leaves.
We are eager to try new varieties and bring back old fashioned favorites. There is a simple joy in getting and giving locally grown goodness.
As we work our way through our beginning seasons, watch for updates on how to share those gifts with your family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by, we can’t wait to grow things for you and our community! Have a question or comment, I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to shoot me a message via the contact page or on Facebook.
