Antiques, Rare Plants, Great Local Food and The Kitchen Garden – Saturday in Garden Heaven Coming Right Up
For everyone who can get to the mid-Hudson Valley this Saturday, May 16th.
Start out in Sharon, CT at Trade Secrets, purchasing ( or pining for) garden antiques, modern embellishments and rare plants brought by dealers and nurserypersons from all over New England.
Then head over to Millbrook, NY for Food for Thought, Plant a Row/Grow a Row, a celebration of local and home grown that offers everything from vegetable seedlings and master gardeners’ advice on growing them to chef’s demos, a wine and cheese tasting and book signings by Nava Atlas, Lee Reich – and me.
Some of what’s growing in my garden – and could be growing in yours – right now
Trade Secrets is 10 – 3. Tickets are $35.00 for general admission, $100.00 for early buying (and possible opportunity for Martha Stewart sightings, should you be interested in such things).
Food For Thought, a half hour away, is 12 – 5 and free. (Bring the kids; there will be animals, including backyard poultry and miniature Herefords). I’ll be there from 3:30 – 5; The wine and cheese tasting starts at 4.
Added Bonus: You get to feel noble while enjoying yourself. Trade Secrets is a benefit for Women’s Support Services. The Food For Thought team helps feed the hungry by helping local gardeners donate their extra bounty or grow a row for the gardenless.
