During the last decades of the nineteenth century, Celia Thaxter’s beautiful garden was flourishing on Appledore Island. She wrote a book about her beloved garden called An Island Garden. Appledore is one of the nine Isles of Shoals, making her unique island garden not easy to visit. Filmmaker Peter Randall is making a film which will bring the story to those who can’t make the trip. View this video for a preview of the film.
This looks like a worthy project and it would be fantastic if Peter Randall could complete it. He is inviting the public to help raise $5,000 for post production costs on Kickstarter which is an online site that promotes the arts by fund raising. The Webmaster liked the project so much she has already pledged some of her own money to help. You can help too!
