Come by the Museum’s historic house at 10B Crescent Road on Sundays from 1-5pm to visit the Museum’s demonstration Victory Garden and pick up a new walking tour guide entitled: A Walk through History: Greenbelt’s Victory Gardens and Farmers Market. The small guide was produced by the Greenbelt’s Farmers Market and was made possible by a Maryland Heritage Area grant. Don’t forget to ask at the house, also, for more information about gardening and canning in the 1940s.
The Museum’s demonstration Victory Garden was begun in the spring of 2010 and is one component of the Museum’s upcoming exhibition, Green from the Start: A History of Gardening in Greenbelt, scheduled to open in the Greenbelt Community Center on August 1. For more information on the exhibition, click on Exhibitions above.
Also in conjunction with the upcoming exhibition, the next event in the Museum’s lecture series will focus on canning. The talk is scheduled for Tuesday, July 20 at 7:30pm in the Greenbelt Community Center, 15 Crescent Road, Greenbelt, MD 20770. Check this website for more information closer to the date. We hope to see you there!
