'Putting Down Roots' Book Event in Shorewood
Join author Marcia Carmichael in celebrating the release of her new Wisconsin Historical Society Press book, Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers
. Refreshments will be available.
When European immigrants and Yankee settlers arrived in Wisconsin in search of a better life, they brought with them a range of agricultural and culinary traditions reflective of their diverse heritages. With "Putting Down Roots," historical gardener Marcia C. Carmichael offers a window into the lives of our ancestors as she details numerous heritage plant varieties, authentic ethnic recipes, cultivation techniques and tools, and folklore tidbits employed in the kitchens and gardens of early Yankee, German, Norwegian, Irish, Danish, Polish and Finnish immigrants.
