Founding Gardeners

Interesting reading for July 4th!

“Founding Gardeners” by Andrea Wulf explores the botanical interests of the men who founded the United States of America. The book allows one to take a second look at these historical figures who are often only portrayed within the key brush strokes of our history. I found myself surprised that they had other interests, besides fighting and drafting new countries (silly I know). I think this book also holds a contagious excitement for gardening and farming. It shows all of the experimentation and creativity involved in the art of cultivating plants.

After “Founding Gardeners” fills you with a new zest for gardening, know that you are always welcome to come and experience it all first hand at our farm!

 

Enjoy those fireworks!
