Trade Secrets Resource Guide Welcome to TRADE SECRETS 2016! This two-day event (held this year on May 14th and 15th) started on my property 16 years ago. It is amazing to see how this small event has grown into one of New England’s finest annual horticultural outings. This popular and much-anticipated annual event is the major fundraiser for Women’s Support Services (WSS), which offers crisis intervention, counseling, and education, as well as legal, medical, and housing assistance to fulfill its mission of creating a community free of domestic violence. This is the eighth year that we are publishing the TRADE SECRETS RESOURCE GUIDE. It includes information on WSS and will also introduce you to the area’s premier landscape professionals, home designers, home and garden destinations, lodging, dining, and more. We hope you will read it, enjoy it, and take it home with you to use as a directory of the area’s best businesses. We want to thank all those who advertise in the TRADE SECRETS RESOURCE GUIDE. Their dollars, along with the contributions of many generous individuals, enable WSS to fulfill its mission. This work is also made possible by the large number of WSS volunteers. Without their dedication and efforts, TRADE SECRETS would not have become such an outstanding event. Finally, many thanks to YOU, our generous event attendees. Enjoy the weekend, and know that you have made a difference: Your involvement and the resources of WSS are needed more than ever to help families in crisis. With much appreciation,

Bunny Williams Founder and Honorary Chair

“There are a few events that go on my calendar each year that I consider sacrosanct: my family’s birthdays, my summer vacation in Maine, my Christmas party, my Easter egg hunt and Trade Secrets.” - Martha Stewart


About Women’s Support Services Women’s Emergency Services (WES) came to be in 1979, created in the words of one of our founders, “because we knew that violence was going on and we decided we had to reach out to those women who felt so alone. After all, some of those women were some of us.” The new agency initially depended on informal donations to pay for basic needs and to provide part-time volunteer coverage of the office, located in a space donated by Sharon Hospital. WES was officially incorporated in 1981 as a not-forprofit agency to meet the needs of victims of domestic violence in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. The first training for volunteer hotline workers took place in February of 1982. A part-time coordinator was hired in September of 1982, by which time 17 crisis calls had been received, and two women and four children were sheltered in volunteers’ homes. WES’s first program coordinator, Sue Kirber, was hired in January of 1983, and the first newsletter was mailed to the community. The need for WES services continued to expand. By September of 1983, 85 crisis calls were received and 15 women and 30 children were sheltered. In early 1985, WES contracted with the state of Connecticut to serve the six-town area that includes Kent, Cornwall, Salisbury, Canaan, Falls Village, and Sharon. The agency also assisted residents in nearby New York and Massachusetts who could not access other services. WES continued to expand, and relied heavily on community volunteers for hotline coverage and to assist clients in need of shelter, court advocacy, transportation, and other services. The WES staff continued to grow and by 1994 it included a full-time program director, two part-time community educators, and one part-time counselor/ advocate. It averaged 40 hotline calls per month and sheltered about 11 women and their children a year. 1 in 4 women experience By 1997, a full-time position of child domestic violence in advocate and community educator their lives. - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, assumed responsibility for counseling Summary Report, 2010 and advocating for the needs of clients’ children, and functioned as the WES community educator in the local schools. Volunteer training groups were held twice a year, and volunteers covered the 24-hour hotline each evening and all weekend. 2


About Women’s Support Services In 1999, WES changed its name to Women’s Support Services, Inc. (WSS) to better reflect the broad range of services the agency provides and to diminish the focus of offering only emergency services. In 2001, the WSS Board purchased a permanent office location in Sharon, where the agency relocated in September of 2002. The new office provided sufficient Nearly 1 in 3 teen girls space to maintain client confidentiality, an improved work environment for report being abused staff, and increased visibility for the by their boyfriends. agency. Client numbers, especially -Futures Without Violence, 2008 walk-in clients, increased significantly after the relocation. In 2002, WSS received funding for a part-time Family Violence Victim Advocate at Bantam Court. This individual ensured that victims were informed of their rights, had a voice in court, and had an advocate during the legal proceedings. WSS again saw an increase in numbers of clients after this position was created. In 2001, the WSS Board undertook a new spring fundraising event, Trade Secrets, developed as an annual rare plant and garden antiques sale with the help of community member Bunny Williams and her head gardener (and WSS Board member) Naomi Blumenthal. The income from Trade Secrets helped WSS purchase a permanent home and enabled the agency to expand programs and increase direct grants to clients for their critical needs. Proceeds from Trade Secrets continue to support the vital work of the agency.

Who Does Domestic Violence Affect? • In their 2010 Summary Report on intimate partner violence, the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that approximately 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 7 men in the United States have experienced severe physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner at least once during their lifetimes. •

Among women who ever experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner, more than 1 in 5 experienced intimate partner violence for the first time between the ages of 11 and 17 years, and nearly half (47.1%) were between the ages of 18 and 24 years (CDC).

• Data from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) reveals that between 2003-2012, domestic violence accounted for 21% of

all violent crime.

• The CDC’s research on youth violence, including bullying, shows that exposure to violence and conflict in the family is a risk factor for perpetration of youth violence. • Every day, 3 women lose their lives in this country as a result of domestic violence (DOJ). CCADV’s Fatality Review Committee reports that Connecticut has experienced an average of 14 intimate partner violence homicides annually in the past decade.

Women’s Support Services by the Numbers Between October 2014 and September 2015, Women’s Support Services: • Provided support services to 570 individuals (489 adults and 81 children) • Responded to 442 crisis contacts (phone calls and walk-ins) • Conducted 894 individual supportive counseling

Who Does WSS Help?* Last year, Women’s Support Services provided assistance to Leslie, a 51-year-old victim in a pending criminal family violence case. When she first met with our Family Violence Victim Advocate, Leslie’s husband of more than 25 years had just been arrested under Connecticut’s family violence laws. At first, Leslie was reluctant to bring up in the court proceedings the long history of abuse her husband had inflicted upon her. When the violence escalated and her adult son became involved, Leslie decided to work with WSS’ Adult Counselor Advocate to explore her options. Our Family Violence Victim Advocate and Adult Counselor Advocate worked together to provide Leslie with safety planning, information, and resources. With the continued support of both advocates, Leslie feels empowered and has decided to file for divorce.

June, a 38-year-old mother of two, came to Women’s Support Services after she left her abusive husband. June shared that her husband’s behavior had become more erratic after she left him. June was also aware that he had weapons in the home and had filed for a pistol permit. June was concerned about her children’s safety if they were to continue visiting with their father. WSS’ Adult Counselor Advocate was able to assist June in creating a safety plan for herself and her children. Through ongoing counseling and support from the Adult Counselor Advocate, June learned about the options that were available. June decided to file for a civil order of protection, and requested that the court order supervised visitation between the children and their father, which was granted by the court. June continues to receive support from the Adult Counselor Advocate, and WSS has been able to help June with additional resources to support her family. *All names have been changed to protect the privacy of our clients. 8

Trade Secrets — what a

special and full weekend for so many reasons. For me, it is a weekend that welcomes the summer — when I have the opportunity to “work” with a hundredplus volunteers, all with the purpose of giving back to the community for a specific cause, Women’s Support Services (WSS). The camaraderie of the volunteers is professional and infectious. It is rare that a new volunteer does not return to help with the next Trade Secrets. I no longer live in Lakeville, yet still make the trip from Cape Candice Barker Cod to volunteer and help in any way I can. This is my fourth trip for Trade Secrets. My first contact with WSS was when I was a garden attendant at Bunny Williams’ garden, during the first years of Trade Secrets — when it was simply a day of local garden tours. Now, thanks to Elaine LaRoche at LionRock Farm, it is an extensive event that is nationally recognized. The exhibits at the Farm are pleasing to the eye — from the rare plants to the garden antiques. Any visitor has much to see and learn. After volunteering for a few years, I was invited to become a member of the Board of Directors. It was then that I learned how important this event is to the agency. This fundraiser is the primary source of income to support the work WSS does in the Northwest Corner. This funding helps the agency to provide intervention, shelter, and support to women, children, and yes, men, living with domestic violence and abuse. Through their education outreach, WSS offers a variety of age-appropriate programs to members of the community. Thank you for your support and I know you will have a great weekend!

coming together over one weekend to support a resource, WSS, that serves those in need. We all pitch in and challenge the weather gods for our early spring adventure. We have fun, and marvel at spectacular gardens, plants, and fascinating paraphernalia. Best of all, we remind ourselves how fortunate we are to live in this community and to share, in some small way, our blessings with our neighbors in need. It is enriching, and every year — now my 12th — I am grateful for the chance to volunteer as a garden captain.

I agreed to work with others to gather a group (around my dining room table) and we became the first underwriting committee. I have served on that committee ever since. The magic of sharing the clear vision of bringing support to WSS, involving people from all corners of our community, and creating something unique and stunning have been present from the very beginning. Legions of us have contributed in ways big and small, and Trade Secrets continues to delight and amaze us all. That is the secret of Trade Secrets.

I look forward to honoring volunteers through my lens in the coming years.

ver the past fifteen years, Trade Secrets has blossomed into one of the most spectacular events in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. As the premier fundraising event for Women’s Support Services, this event has been carefully cultivated; the proceeds from Trade Secrets enable WSS to provide multifaceted benefits to our community, offering invaluable support to those affected by domestic violence and instilling the importance of awareness. After recently returning to the area where I grew up, I was delighted when asked to take on the role of Chairperson of the Volunteer Committee for Trade Secrets in 2015. It was my first experience working with this engine of good and I have been incredibly impressed with the tremendous amount of hard work and dedication from everyone involved. I am thrilled to be embarking on my second year, having the pleasure yet again to work with volunteers whose positive energy and deep commitment are nothing short of enlightening. The breadth and depth of WSS’s mission continues to grow and we welcome anyone who is interested in supporting this effort to join us in the future. 19

C. Warren Carter

Two years ago I was honored when Women’s Support Services

asked if I would serve on their Board and I have since learned what remarkable work the agency provides to women and families throughout northwest Connecticut and into New York. This vital service is often the last refuge for women subjected to the terror of domestic violence. And, WSS is one of a very few agencies that provides free ongoing counseling to its clients seeking a permanent safety net from abuse and violence. At a time when domestic violence in America is finally getting the right attention, it is important that local firsthand providers of aid continue to thrive and expand through various forms of financial funding. Revenue from Trade Secrets has become the largest single source of operating income for WSS and I am thrilled to help this wonderful community event succeed in support of Women’s Support Services. 21

hortly after a friend asked me to serve as her Volunteer Committee co-chair for the upcoming Trade Secrets event, she had a personal emergency. I found myself facing this daunting assignment alone! I called my good friend, Harriet Weiss, and crossed my fingers, hoping she would say “yes” to my desperate plea for help. Of course she did. It was a baptism by fire for both of us. In the three years that we were the co-chairs, we learned that it takes a village of volunteers to put on Trade Secrets. These selfless people are there year in and year out, always gracious in every condition, from blazing heat to pouring rain to snow, helping to support Trade Secrets, Women’s Support Services, and our entire community.

Elise & John Carlson

From Elise... I was drawn to Trade Secrets as a plant enthusiast and a gardener.

The first year my husband and I went on the garden tour, and then the next year the plant sale, and by the third year, we were hooked, and wanted to volunteer and to be a part of this extraordinary community effort to raise funds for Women’s Support Services. It knocks my socks off that for two days in May, folks in the Northwest Corner come out and haul plants, load cars, serve food, direct traffic, collect tickets, and do all of the many jobs that need to be done to make the sale and tour happen. It’s exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time! And I’m glad to be a part of it, and to help WSS work toward their goal of ending domestic violence in our community. If you haven’t had the chance to come out and help, please give it some consideration. There is something for everyone to do, and you will meet some very dear and lovely people along the way.

From John... My introduction to Trade Secrets was attending the garden tour when

my wife and I first relocated to the Northwest Corner about 5 years ago. My sister and brother in-law were visiting and we had a wonderful time touring the gardens and showing them our new community. After learning that Trade Secrets was a fundraiser for Women’s Support Services and the important contributions they make to our community, my wife and I began volunteering together soon after and have continued to do so ever since. Volunteering for Trade Secrets has been lots of fun and a great chance to work with wonderful people for such an important cause. I am glad to count myself among the over one hundred volunteers who help to make this event possible. 25

I first got involved with Trade

Anne Day

Secrets when Deb Munson asked me to take some pictures of the event and the gardens. The event is so much fun — it is easy to forget that we raise money for a very un-fun issue. I later did the volunteer training and attempted to be a hotline volunteer. That work did not suit my temperament — it made me too nervous, so I now volunteer doing what is natural for me. I take pictures of the event and the gardens and I make portraits of volunteers and staff. I am glad to be able to contribute in the best way I can, and hope to continue my involvement with this most important issue.

e who live in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut are so fortunate to have an organization like Women’s Support Services working on behalf of women in our region. Every spring I look forward to volunteering at Trade Secrets, which gives so much to WSS. I was first introduced to this win-win opportunity when my friend and co-coach, Nina Otterson, suggested we bring our Hotchkiss lacrosse team to volunteer at Trade Secrets. Not only are we helping the event run smoothly, but we also have fun meeting new people and being together as a team. I am grateful for the pairing of Trade Secrets and Women’s Support Services and look forward to helping out once again this year.

y happenstance, as these things often go, I engaged Melissa Sorman, who was recommended by a friend, to help me design and plant a few garden plots around my Sharon weekend home that I purchased in 1999. And as it turned out, we became good friends by discovering a number of interests in common, one of which was deriving pleasure from helping others. So, at some point around 2002, Melissa mentioned her volunteer work for Trade Secrets, then in its infancy at Bunny Williams’ home in Falls Village. Melissa was helping with food service for the volunteers and asked me if I could be a runner to pick up donated food from various area restaurants for Larry King the volunteers. If I recall correctly, Trade Secrets was accompanied by a snowstorm that first May — not fun. Nevertheless, there I was driving around with my trusty dog, Penny, in the backseat picking up gorgeous plates of prepared sandwiches and such. Hence began my decade-long (plus) volunteer career with Trade Secrets. Mostly, I have concentrated on the food side of the Saturday event, for both volunteers and attendees, as well as Friday night dinners for the various exhibitors such as bartending and working behind-the-scenes to keep everything moving like clockwork. Occasionally, I’ve been a parking lot attendant at the main event and an assistant parking director at several of the fantastic garden tour homes. I continue to volunteer for Trade Secrets because I believe in the essential work that Women’s Support Services does and I continue to derive pleasure from helping others. ©Anne Day

his will be my third year of volunteering for Trade Secrets. Since moving here 13 years ago, I have looked forward ardently each year to Trade Secrets. The vendor displays, the settings, and the energy of the event are always so wonderfully inspiring! A few years ago, I had the opportunity to volunteer behind-the-scenes in helping to arrange the set-up for the antiques vendors. I was also introduced to the army of volunteers and other committee chairs who work nearly a year in advance to ensure the event’s success. I was struck by the harmony and optimism behind everyone’s tireless efforts. It was unlike other volunteer work that I had done. Here, every volunteer was invested in making the event such a success. We are united in our mission to help the event succeed so that, in turn, Women’s Support Services can succeed and continue its outreach to women in need and their children throughout the Northwest Corner. It’s a privilege to be a part of this event. 31

rade Secrets — that wonderful and enchanting weekend that happens every spring. It would be difficult for me to envision my life without gardening or antiques, and after being involved with Trade Secrets, first as an attendee, then as a volunteer, and eventually as an antiques vendor at the event, it would be hard to imagine spring without the thrill of being involved with Trade Secrets weekend. My involvement starts in the early fall as we plan the Resource Guide for the following year. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my creative and marketing skills with my fellow volunteers and the highly dedicated staff at Women’s Support Services. Much of my work with WSS involves interacting with Bob Pidkameny the businesses and vendors who advertise in the Resource Guide. Many of these people are friends, both old and new, so it never feels like work, especially because all of this effort is helping people who are suffering through a difficult time. My involvement with Trade Secrets continues throughout the winter, as I continue to meet with advertisers, and collect interesting garden antiques to sell at the event. In early May, I work with a group of volunteers to distribute the Resource Guides to the advertisers and popular local businesses. And then it is showtime for all of us gardening enthusiasts! Whatever weather the skies share with us during the weekend, it is always a happy place at LionRock Farm on Saturday and the spectacular gardens on Sunday’s tour. My personal mission as a volunteer with WSS is to be constantly introducing people to Trade Secrets and to the mission of Women’s Support Services. By attending Trade Secrets, you are not only enhancing your garden and home, you are enriching the lives of people who are experiencing a serious crisis and are in need of support. Your passion for gardening will help many beyond your garden. Every plant or antique you buy, as well as every garden you visit this weekend will make another persons life grow that much better. Please invite a new friend or neighbor to join you at Trade Secrets next year — it will be be a weekend they will look forward to every spring. 33

Trade Secrets Volunteers

©Anne Day

Dawn Cassara

016 marks the fourth consecutive year I have had the honor and privilege to work alongside the very dedicated WSS staff, committee chairs, and volunteers who work together tirelessly to ensure that Trade Secrets goes off seamlessly each year. I began as a volunteer, helping to assist vendors and patrons at the Saturday sale. For the past three years I have served on the signage committee where, together with my very talented co-chair Christine Owen, I’ve been able to contribute to this incredible event by using my creativity and love of painting to rehabilitate old, and to create new hand-painted signs which are used for both Saturday’s sale and Sunday’s garden tour. I am delighted to be able to lend my talents to benefit an organization that provides much-needed services to victims of domestic violence.

J

im Hutchison is a long-time supporter of Trade Secrets. He has been our chief traffic officer at the event for years and is easily identifiable as the big guy with the big hat, the big smile, and the big, completely unflappable demeanor. No worries — that is Jim’s angle. Nothing is too much effort for him, and he will find a way through every pesky parking problem. Jim also gives generously of his time to WSS and has been giving CPR training to volunteers for years. Trade Secrets and WSS owe Jim, and all of his fellow volunteers, a great debt of gratitude for all the dedicated work that he, and they, do for our cause.

Trade Secrets Garden Tour ~ Sunday, May 15, 2016 Tickets for the Garden Tour on Sunday, May 15, 2016 may be purchased during the Rare Plant & Garden Antiques Sale on May 14 or at any of the gardens on Sunday. Maps to the gardens will be available at a kiosk on Route 41 across from LionRock Farm on Sunday. OLD FARM NURSERY At Judy and Patrick Murphy’s Old Farm Nursery, the iconic elements of a New England farm (paddocks, cornfields, barns) frame acres of inspiring ideas (a fruit tree allée, a white garden, a woodland shade garden, a secret garden/swimming pool, a river garden). MICHAEL TRAPP’S HOME GARDEN Michael Trapp artfully combines traditional elements (towering evergreens surrounding the house offer a sense of old-world formality) and exotic touches such as yew and yucca. There are reflecting pools, a grape arbor, crab apples underplanted with liriope — and exquisite views of the nearby farm fields. WEATHERSTONE Carolyne Roehm’s historic Weatherstone is the epitome of understated elegance, with boxwood topiaries framing the main buildings, a fruit orchard underplanted with daffodils, hundreds of hybrid roses blooming next to the peony borders, and red brick paths that outline the cutting garden and potager. BUNNY WILLIAMS AND JOHN ROSELLI GARDEN Bunny Williams’ and John Rosselli’s longstanding love affair with their Falls Village home becomes abundantly clear after a stroll through the gardens. John’s vegetable and cutting garden reflect his skills in the kitchen while Bunny’s eclectic aesthetic is evident in her entertaining spaces — from the greenhouse to the Greek temple-style pool house. Together, the two have created a well-curated journey from the sunken formal garden to the wildflower-dense woodland, by way of heirloom apple trees and charming heritage-breed chickens. 75
