Join Marcia Carmichael, the historical gardener at Old World Wisconsin, as she discusses her newest book, “Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers” beginning at 1:30 p.m. on March 17 at the Mukwonago Community Library, 300 Washington Ave., Mukwonago.
Culture and history can be passed from one generation to the next through the food we eat, the vegetables and fruits we plant and harvest, and the fragrant flowers and herbs that enliven our gardens. The plants our ancestors grew tell stories about their way of life. Ms. Carmichael will share timeless lessons with today’s gardeners and cooks about planting trends and practices, garden tools used by early settlers, popular plant varieties, and favorite flavors of Wisconsin’s early settlers.
