'Vintage Wisconsin Gardens: A History of Home Gardening' Book Event in Sturgeon Bay
In "Vintage Wisconsin Gardens: A History of Home Gardening," Lee Somerville introduces readers to the region's ornamental gardens of the 19th and early 20th centuries, showcasing the "vernacular" gardens created by landscaping enthusiasts for their own use and pleasure.
Lee Somerville will be in Sturgeon Bay to guide visitors through the Heritage Garden and other areas of the historical village at Crossroads at Big Creek, explaining and demonstrating late 19th-century uses for the flowers, herbs and vegetables that fill the beds. Visitors can make herb posies to take home. Copies of 'Vintage Wisconsin Gardens'
will be available for sale.
Lee Somerville is a landscape historian and master gardener. Originally from Liverpool, England, her home for the past 35 years has been northeastern Wisconsin.
