Interpretive Garden planting

May 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 4:00 pm

For the gardening season, visitors can help plant the museum’s Interpretive Garden on Saturday, May 20, from noon to 4 p.m. Garden Planting Day includes indoor activities in case of inclement weather. A second planting day is planned for the same time on Saturday, June 3. The garden will be planted using heirloom seeds, including Buffalo Creek and Canada crookneck squashes, Blue Shackamaxon, Arikara Yellow and Genuine Cornfield beans, eight-row Rhode Island flint corn and Seneca sunflowers. Replica stone garden hoes will be available to try out and there will be a small seed library for visitors who would like to grow some crops at home. The activities will be guided by museum staff and volunteers as well as members of the Ohio County Master Gardeners. https://wvculture.org/grave-creek-mound-archaeological-complex-celebrates-historic-preservation-and-gardening-in-may/
