Morning Heirloom Garden Stroll
Enjoy a special before-hours garden visit with our own historical gardener, Marcia Carmichael, author of "Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers." Learn about immigrants from Poland and southern Germany, their gardening styles and traditions, and meet some of their favorite plants as we stroll through our Kruza and Schottler gardens. The tour will conclude at Caldwell Farmers' Club Hall with refreshments featuring flavors from the homelands of the gardens visited. Each Garden Stroll ticket includes one half-price museum admission ticket valid during the 2012 season. Copies of Putting Down Roots
will be available for purchase and signing after the tour. Another Heirloom Garden Stroll
event will take place on August 23.
