Join Maine Historical Society for a hands-on exploration of the issues and opportunities in maintaining or re-creating a historic garden. Using the Longfellow Garden as a laboratory, participants will be introduced to a variety of locally-available plantings, consider which plant varieties are appropriate in a variety of settings, and identify specific plant varieties to introduce at home. This program is free but pre-registration is required. Please call 774-1822 x215 or email lvpicard@mainehistory.org to register. This event is held in partnership with the Longfellow Garden Club.
