Join JMM on November 4 for “Founding Gardeners” with Andrea Wulf

The James Monroe Museum and the Fredericksburg Area Museum are pleased to present a talk by Andrea Wulf, author of the recent New York Times best-seller Founding Gardeners, on Friday, November 4, at 7 p.m. at the Area Museum!

For the Founding Fathers, gardening, botany, and agriculture were elemental passions, as deeply ingrained in their characters as their belief in liberty for the nation they were creating. Wulf’s talk will offer a fascinating look at the revolutionary generation from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners and farmers. A book-signing will follow.

Tickets are $12 ($10 for Friends of JMM) and can be purchased by calling Adele Uphaus-Conner at x1123 or e-mailing auphaus@umw.edu. Find out more about Andrea Wulf and the book at her website.

Additional support for this program comes from Ron Singleton, Roxbury Farm and Garden Center, the Ann Page Garden Club, and the Rappahannock Area Master Gardeners Association.
