Tour of Allied Arts Guild 04/28/12 : Dartmouth alumni and guests gathered for a private docent-lead tour of one of the Peninsula’s artistic treasurers — the Allied Arts Guild, located in Menlo Park. It stands on part of what was once a vast 35,250 acre land grant dating back to the late 18th century. In 1929, wealthy art lovers Delight and Garfield Merner bought 3.5 acres of the land located at the edge of Menlo Park. Working closely with architect Gardner Dailey and artist Pedro de Lemos, they began to realize their dream of creating an arts guild in California. The Merners' goals were to provide a workplace for artists; to encourage the crafting of handsome objects for everyday use; and to support all peasant or folk art, especially that of early California.

DAASV Tours the Historic Filoli Mansion & Gardens 03/31/12 : Filoli was designed to include many of the elements you would expect on an English country estate, yet its here in Silicon Valley. In addition to a formal garden, plenty of space was allocated for a large working kitchen garden with espaliered fruits, berry cages, vegetable garden, cutting garden and greenhouses. There was a farm group constructed with a superintendent's house, stable for draft horses, cook house and dormitory for the men. The 10-acre gentlemen's orchard, with its rare collection of fruit and cellar, was a significant feature placed in a prominent location right along the entry drive. A stone corporation yard was built to house farm vehicles and there were fowl houses for raising Mr. Bourn's favorite breed of Chanticleer chickens. There were two cow barns on the site and pasture for Mr. Bourn's flocks of sheep, which not only added landscape value, but kept the vegetation down, reduced fire hazard and helped keep the landscape views open.  Filoli had the distinction of being one of the last country places built on the Peninsula and the one that survived the longest in its original design.
