Garden Party Series- Heirloom Varieties

August 22 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Gibbs Farm Garden Party Series
$40 ($30 RCHS Member Price)

A mini-fieldtrip just for adults! Each event will focus on one of our favorite topics- expect fun facts, historical sources and a special peek into what makes our 8-acre historic site so special.
Each event includes themed snacks, beverages (beer, wine and NA options) and the opportunity to get hands-on and up-close with history and nature.

August 22- Heirloom Varieties

History at the height of summer!

After enjoying some seasonal snacks we will head out to our pioneer and farmhouse gardens.

We will touch on the ways that farming and the Twin Cities grew together, and how market gardeners like the Gibbs family started their business. We will define some horticultural terms, discuss plant name origins and share our favorite books and retail sources. Plus, find out about our plant-based successes and learning opportunities (failures) and how we balance history and modern best practices.
