'Garden Wisdom: Lessons Learned from 60 Years of Gardening' Book Launch in Wild Rose

In this treasure trove of tips, recollections and recipes, "Garden Wisdom: Lessons Learned from 60 Years of Gardening" from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press, author Jerry Apps combines his hard-earned advice for garden success with a discussion of how tending a garden leads to a deeper understanding of nature and the land.

Apps will be at the Patterson Memorial Public Library in Wild Rose to celebrate the release of Garden Wisdom. Dinner will be followed by a presentation and book signing. Please contact the library for reservations.

Jerry Apps has been a rural historian and environmental writer for more than 40 years. He has published books on many rural topics, including "Every Farm Tells a Story," "Living a Country Year," "Horse-Drawn Days," "Barns of Wisconsin" and "Old Farm." He is a former county extension agent and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and a lifelong vegetable gardener.
