Planting History: Abenaki Planting School

Saturday, April 20, 2019

It is almost planting season in Vermont! Join the Vermont Historical Society for "Planting History" a short, two-hour workshop on Historic Abenaki crops and planting techniques, complete with tips on choosing ancient regional crop varieties available locally or online, as well as a examination of brush clearing and designing indigenous-style gardens and fields. As part of the “Seeds of Renewal” exhibit, detailing Vermont Abenaki Food Systems, Guest Curator Fred Wiseman will share his years of experience with these unique crops and the ways that they have been raised by Vermont Abenakis from prehistory to today. Refreshments and packets of VT seeds from High-Mowing Seeds in Wolcott, VT will be also available. The workshop is free, but space is limited. Register online here:
