This Week at Monticello

October 15, 2008

Don’t miss the Apple Tasting event on Saturday the 18th beginning at 9:30 am at Tufton Farm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online here. Last year’s winner? The mighty Albemarle Pippin of course!

If you like archeology (and who doesn’t!) head over to the Archeology Open House which will open their lab to the public between 10am and 4 pm. On display will be lots of cool stuff. Its free and be sure to wear comfortable shoes for one the 90 minute tours of the nearby archeological sites. Click here for more info.

Heritage Harvest Festival

September 5, 2008

If you are into gardening at all, don’t miss out on the 2nd annual Festival hosted by Monticello and the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

The Festival is being held at Monticello’s Tufton Farm, just down the road from Monticello and will run all day Saturday the 6th, beginning with an early morning seed exchange.

Some of the workshops offered include Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden, Fall and Winter Veggies, Growing and Marketing Ginseng, plus plenty of food tasting.

If I end up going, I will try to bring back some pics.
