  • "I want to help as much as possible to sustain Shelburne Farms"

    I love history and the period of time when horse drawn carriages is a major interest.

    The history of the coach barn is of great interest me.

  • "My heartfelt belief in its core mission"

    I could easily fill several very thick volumes on what Shelburne Farms means to me. But the truth is that the essential meaning it holds is even too sacred a thing to really explain…my heartfelt belief in its core mission of Universal Sustainability through Education; a formula for change that will help change the World into a safer and more equitable place for everyone. Thank you… for making me feel I'm a part of this remarkable place called Shelburne Farms. It represents a true and beneficial social revolution in all ways.
