The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Early American Women and Their Kitchen Gardens – In Person
November 16 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PMFree
Kitchen gardens in the 1700’s fed, healed, and clothed Early American families. The 18th century “huswife” skill set included “physicke, cookery, distillation, perfumery, the making of wool, hemp, flax, dayries, brewing, baking,” and, of course – gardening. Growing plants both Native American and from their homelands, these women turned their soup pots into the “melting pot” that is America and exemplified all the best qualities of plantswomen and patriots.
