Work with the Homestead’s Gardener to cultivate and maintain the gardens surrounding the home of Senator Justin Morrill, author of the Land Grant College Acts that made higher education available to people from all walks of life. This is the first of several 2017 projects designed to nurture the colorful annual beds in the pleasure ground and expand the kitchen garden—Morrill’s laboratory for experimenting with plant hardiness that contains a variety of perennials, berry bushes, herbs and roses.
Come join us and become a part of Vermont’s history as we build out the landscape of thisvery influential American. You can earn all of your Master Gardener outreach hours with us.
(Ellen Ecker Ogden, author of The Complete Kitchen Garden, will offer a class on Kitchen Garden Design. See calendar listing for Sunday, August 6.)
All Welcome. No registration required, but doing so helps us plan.
