To inspire and connect people through the world created by author, illustrator and early American lifestyle icon, Tasha Tudor.

Organizational History

The Tasha Tudor Society was founded in 2006 by Tasha’s grand-daughter-in-law, Amy Tudor. It received federal exempt status in 2007, six months before Tasha passed away.  Tasha was pleased that her family founded an organization to preserve and celebrate her lifetime of work and joy, calling the organization “a feather in my cap.”

From 2007- 2010, charter members donated over $123,000 and the Society, originally operating as the Tasha Tudor Museum, opened an exhibit space in West Brattleboro, Vermont.

From 2009-2016, the organization created a new exhibit each summer and welcomed 5300 guests from around the world.

In 2017,  the Tasha Tudor Society closed the exhibit space to focus on producing our award-winning printed Journal of the Tasha Tudor Society, Society chapters, and developing new programs that would be accessible worldwide.

Board of Trustees

Amy Tudor, founded the non-profit Tasha Tudor Society after seeing the tremendous impact Tasha’s work had on her legions of fans through Amy’s role as garden apprentice, granddaughter-in-law, next door neighbor and founding member of the family enterprise, Tasha Tudor and Family Inc.

Winslow Tudor, Tasha’s grandson, brings an expertise for all things Tasha Tudor that could only be achieved by growing up next door. Winslow was a founding member of the family business, Tasha Tudor and Family Inc.; maintains Tasha Tudor’s privately owned Vermont homestead and published his first book The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook in 2016.

Christina Clough is one of the relatively few people who can say they grew up in Corgiville otherwise known as Harrisville, New Hampshire, whose village center is the model for Corgiville. This is just one of several connections that serendipitously led Christina to the Tudor family’s door. Christina had the pleasure of getting to know Tasha in her last years, and delighted in her refined tastes, eclectic knowledge and gentle mischief.
