Garland Farm on Mount Desert Island, Maine, now may become an education center, which had been Farrand's wish for the garden she developed at her former home Reef Point. "When it became evident that Mrs. Farrand could not develop the Reef Point Garden into an educational center, she dismantled the garden and house but saved the plantings, fixtures and architectural materials. Many of the plants went to the Asticou and Thuya Gardens in Northeast Harbor and some, including her collection of global heathers, came to the Garland Farm."
