Spring Garden Workshop at Landis Valley
One day. Two experts. And a wealth of knowledge about heirloom vegetable gardening.
Renown gardening author, Amy Goldman, is past Chairman of the Board of Seed Savers Exchange, one of the premier heirloom seed organizations in the U.S. She now acts a Special Advisor to the board. She also has her own extensive gardens from which she has become quite well-known through her exquisitely photographed and painstakingly researched books on Tomatoes, Squashes, Melons, and Heirloom Seed Harvesting. The morning sessions with Amy will focus upon her favorite "fruit vegetables" (that means melons and tomatoes). She has a wealth of knowledge in growing, propagating, and enjoying the harvest from these palate-pleasing vegetables. There will be time set aside for question and answer.
Lunch will be provided for all participants.
The afternoon sessions with Pat Brodowski will focus upon herbs and vegetables grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello as well as seed saving techniques used at Monticello for their heirloom plants.
Pat is the Specialty Gardener at Monticello, where she has been tending to the thousand-foot-long kitchen gardens herbs and vegetables for the past ten years. Before that, she was involved with the Carroll County Farm Museum. Her duties at Monticello include coaxing them to grow and confirming their historical accuracy and relevance. More than merely a historical showpiece, Monticellos kitchen garden produces crops of vegetables for use in the Visitor Center café as well as for sampling during the popular Garden Tours and school group demonstrations. Pats enthusiasm for the subject is infectious, as she shares a wealth of garden history and instruction to her garden guests.
She is a graduate of Cornell University, and completed her Masters Thesis on Jeffersons cultivation of salad greens and herbs at McDaniel College. She
There will be time set aside for question and answer for these sessions, as well.
