trouble in the garden

view from Sand Island looking South

January 21, 2004 the Monticello Foundation announced that they were spending 15 million dollars to acquire 330 acres in the Monticello viewshed. How I applaud that move!

Hello up there on the Hill! Tommy do you hear me! Please buy our neighborhood!

The Woolen Mills Neighborhood is the residential garden in a bend of the Rivanna at the foot of Monticello. There is trouble in the Garden.

Bulldozers are warming up their engines, ready to clear more land for chain link and high density usage. Please help us Oh! people of the Hill, we implore and beseech thee. Please help us preserve a bit of Jefferson's agrarian view.
