'Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers' Book Event in Hales Corners

Culture and history can be passed from one generation to the next through the food we eat, the vegetables and fruits we plant and harvest, and the fragrant flowers and herbs that enliven our gardens. 'Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers' reveals how the plants our ancestors grew tell stories about their way of life.

Marcia Carmichael, author of "Putting Down Roots," will be holding an interactive presentation on behalf of the Southeast Wisconsin Master Gardeners and will sign books.

Marcia C. Carmichael is the historical gardener at the 576-acre Old World Wisconsin, the largest of the Wisconsin Historical Society's living history museums, where she exercises her passion for historical accuracy and enjoys the research as much as the design, creation and nurturing of the museum's heritage gardens.
