Sunday in the Garden: Sanford Farm
Sunday, August 21, 2011 10:30 am–noon (museum hours are noon–5 pm)
Celebrate the summer 2011 release of Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers by Old World Wisconsin's own historical gardener, Marcia Carmichael. She'll take you on an in-the-field garden visit as she shares her wisdom — this month in the Sanford garden. You'll walk and chat, pet and sniff, as you meet the plants and learn about their uses and history. (Books will be available for purchase at the museum store, but a purchase is not required for participation. Marcia will be happy to sign copies of the book after the garden visit.) Consider stopping by the Clausing Barn Restaurant after the tour. In honor of the event there will be a special lunch choice based on produce or a recipe from the Sanford kitchen garden.
The ticket office will open at 10 am. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early as the garden-bound tram will depart promptly at 10:30 am. A return tram will arrive back at the Visitor Mall by noon.
$5 per person (free with full-price daily admission). Regular admission rates: adults $16; children (5-17) $9 (children under 5 are free); students and senior citizens (65 and over) $14; family (two adults and two or more dependent children 5-17) $43. Fees include an all-day tram transportation pass. Reservations required for the garden event (available through Aug 19 at noon). Membership discounts do not apply.
