Join Us at the Heritage Harvest Fest at Monticello next weekend!

I'm ecstastic that Washington Gardener Magazine will once again be the part of the 8th annual Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello this year. It is a celebration of gardening, sustainable agriculture, and local food, held on the breathtaking West Lawn of Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville, VA. Taste heirloom fruits and vegetables and learn about organic gardening and seed-saving at this fun, family-friendly festival talking place Friday-Saturday, September 12-13, 2014.
We'll have a table in the Vendor Marketplace Tent all day Saturday where you can sign up for subscriptions or buy current and back issues. I'll also be talking on "Regionally Adapted Plants" on Friday at 4:30pm in the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center. My talk is part of the premium workshop track and you must register separately for those. I urge you to do so soon at since they sold out last year in advance.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some of my friends and colleague there as well as participating in the old-fashioned Seed Swap on early Saturday morning. Here is a video I made of the swap in 2012:

I hope you will join me for all or part of the festival!
