Growing Up in Wilton

Adrienne Reedy
Adrienne Reedy’s house was bustling with the energy of her three children home during summer vacation; her retired husband, Steve, milling about; their friendly dog meandering into rooms; and a former neighbor from Philadelphia who had arrived on their doorstep to say hello. There was a lively buzz in this Wilton household that would soon spread beyond the town’s borders. Spearheaded by Adrienne, the Reedys have a purpose to help others throughout the world...

Olmstead Hill Farm: A Wilton Garden Pays Homage to an Ancestral Home
