As part of “Historic Kitchen Gardens,” on Nov. 5, Old World Wisconsin’s historic gardener, Marcia Carmichael, will show participants how to design kitchen gardens by looking back to Wisconsin’s ethnically diverse 19th century settlers and their kitchen gardening styles, heirloom plants and traditions.

Day Classes are held 9 am – 4 pm.

On Nov. 13 from 1 – 4 pm, a half-day class will be held entitled, “Decorating with Winter Greens,” with Mike Schneider. Use natural materials to make elegant indoor and outdoor arrangements to last the entire winter in sphagnum moss-lined baskets for outdoors and in containers for indoor display.
