The New Heirloom Garden

What is an Heirloom Garden?

Charlotte Seed Library and Charlotte Grange invite you to join Seed Library Coordinator Karen Tuininga and award-winning Vermont author and kitchen garden designer Ellen Ecker Ogden, for a two-part presentation/discussion about gardening with heirloom varieties and saving their seeds.  Based on Ellen’s 2021 book, The New Heirloom Garden (featuring designs, recipes and heirloom plants for cooks who love to garden), we will explore the process of creating and enjoying a home food garden with an eye toward both beauty and productivity.  Blending inspiration and practicality, this book deepens our understanding of the value and pleasure of a kitchen garden based on open-pollenated heirloom varieties, and how to save their seeds for ourselves and to share with others.

April 16 and 23, 11:00-12:30 via Zoom.  Register in advance here:
