Unable to forget the fabulous Shangri-La in Hawaii, Dori Duke’s Newport Restoration Foundation caught my eye while I contemplated touring her other home, Rough Point. With limited time on Sunday morning, we decided to forgo any mansion tour and drive back up to Middletown to see Prescott Farm, another property managed by the foundation. Nestled next to a busy road, this peaceful farm is dedicated to preserving a patch of 18th and 19th century Rhode Island architecture and landscape. I particularly enjoyed exploring the kitchen & herb garden tended by volunteers through a partnership with URI’s Master Gardener program. They day we visited, volunteers were kindly offering soil testing and garden help.
