DCMGA: Heirloom Biographies

April 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Delve into the intricate histories of cherished heirloom plants with Janell Wehr. We’ll explore captivating stories,  including AW Livingston, the father of the modern tomato, and Wisconsin’s own Beaver Dam peppers and Picha potatoes. We’ll unravel the unique narratives behind these beloved varieties and many more, each rooted in cultural and agricultural significance. The program culminates in an insightful understanding of terms heirloom, open-pollinated, hybrid, and GMO.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be live streamed at Crossroads at Big Creek at 6:30 p.m. and also available for at-home viewing via Zoom.
