With a clean survey, updated easement with access for utilities, favorable feedback from the Preapplication Conference, and our environmental permit for the driveway, we are finally ready to close!
Spiritually, River Bend Gardens was established July 3, 2017……the first time I hiked the property and fell in love with the place.
Technically, the gardens were established December 18, 2017 when Julie and I entered into a sales contract with Jim Mann.
Legally, the gardens were established January 17, 2019 when deed transferred from the Mann family to Julie and myself at the title closing.
Regardless how one might elect to consider the establishment date of the gardens, after thirty-one years, thank God, I’m home in the Village of Manchester.

So happy for you both. I know its been a long road, but you’ve accomplished so much and your vision for RBG is becoming tangible – physically visible via your photos and updates – to those of us watching from afar! Looking forward to continued progress…. can’t wait to visit some day!
