Expert garden consultant and plant historian, Christie Higginbottom will speak about the history and importance of saving seeds on Wednesday, August 28, from 7 – 9 at the Petersham Memorial Library, 23 Common Street in Petersham. Farmers and gardeners can nurture and perpetuate their best flowers and vegetables and share their bounty to create local food sources and locally adapted plants. Or just enjoy sharing seeds with your friends!
Christie will teach how to grow, harvest, and save your own seeds. Christie has worked at Old Sturbridge Village, creating period gardens and preserving heirloom plants. She has lectured at such venues as Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants at Monticello, and the New England Wild Flower Society. She is a recipient of the Thalassa Cruso Award from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Presented by the Petersham Memorial Library Seed Savers Program with support of the Petersham Grange.
