Garden Party!

Monday, June 7th, the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace will host a planting party! Local VISTA Amelia Swenson has been planning an herb garden here at the Birthplace, and we’ll begin planting Monday.

Bring any herbs, flowers, or seeds you’d like to plant—right now, we have mint, chives, oregano, comfrey, elecampane, thyme, calendula, hollyhock, and dill. We might even plant an heirloom tomato or two!

Planting starts at 9 am, to be followed by cookies and lemonade. Don’t forget your trowel and gloves, and wear plenty of sunscreen!
