I grew up in Tolland, CT and have wonderful memories visiting Caprilands Herb Farm during the 1970's & 1980's. My sister and I were in that area this past weekend for a highschool reunion and drove over there to visit. We had found a blog posting from 2008 indicating that it was still in operation.

Ms. Simmons passing was indeed terrible for the farm. The onset of legal issues concerning the conservatorship has probably also taken its toll as well. I was there in fact the summer before she passed on as well as throughout the fall and actually had visited for her funeral. The farm was not that bad at all. The employees were as they always were; friendly and educating. I had visited there many times since then to find this was not the farm it had been even in the year she passed on. I know her children were involved to some extent with a fair regard for the one daughter and wonder if she is involved again? If not maybe she could be? I know that the relationship between Mr. Cook and her must be stressed however in regards to the farm and its current condition she might be needed as well as some of the old employees like Tina. I know this farm to be enchanting... almost bewitching, to say the least. When last visited one must know this is not the farm with the reputation of what we all remember. Insofar as the farms comments back onto the web site here... The farm was not that bad before her passing, Danielson could be the length of an hour and half due to two very different routes taken. One from Mass. the other route 6. Please stop making excuses for the farms lack of organization and get the dirt flying!! Stop battering the old herbal customers that have sat with Adelma and made pomerander balls while it snowed and start figuring out how to put every cent that you make back into bringing this farm back to where it was even to the year she passed because even just that would be an improvement. Find the old employees, find Adelma's old herbals, get some lecturers into the green house, serve some tea and make this a great year for Adelma's sake. I know you can do this Mr. Cook.

I read Shatioya and Richard De La Tour's book, "The Herbalist's Garden" in which there is a chapter on the late Adelma Simmons and Caprilands. I wanted to find out more and went online and was directed to a number of links of which this site was one.

I hasten to add program volunteers meet one morning a week either on a Tuesday or Thursday. Of course if time and interest is there, volunteers are always welcome to come both days as their schedule allows.
Another possibility would be internships where people come and learn in different areas of the program in exchange for their time and energy.
