The Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello is a family-friendly, educational event that brings together a regional community of organic and sustainable gardening proponents, heirloom plant preservationists and seed savers. This year’s event will be held on Montalto, the “high mountain” that rises 400 feet above Thomas Jefferson’s gardens at Monticello and will offer food tastings, a seed swap, workshops, demonstrations and other hands-on-activities. We are happy to announce that two of our contributing editors — Barbara Pleasant
and William Woys Weaver
— will be sharing their gardening expertise at the festival.
The activities begin at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in Charlottesville, Va., on Friday, September 11 with a full day of workshops on Saturday, September 12.
