The New Victory Garden: Harmonizing Vegetables and Flowers

Presented by Erin Clark and Joe Brunetti

Wednesday, April 16, 7:30 to 9:00 pm

Historic Takoma, Inc., 7328 Carroll Ave., Takoma Park, MD

Erin Clark and Joe Brunetti , Smithsonian Gardens horticulturists, will start with a quick history of Victory Gardens, add some fun facts about war propaganda and what was harvested, then dive into some of their favorite fruit, vegetable, and flower combinations.

Joe is a SE Pennsylvania native with a BS in Horticulture from Temple University, whose passions since childhood have been planting and cultivating his own food, and eating home grown food. At the National Museum of American History he designs, installs and cares for multiple themed gardens related to exhibits inside the museum, two of which will be featured in the talk.

Erin trained at Brigham Young University and has gardened for the past ten years in the mid-Atlantic. She is responsible for the Heirloom Garden at the National Museum of American History, designed with a palette of herbs, perennials, and annuals used in American Gardens in eras from colonial times to 1950.

This event is free and open to the public. No reservations required. You are invited to wear your own (recycled) name tag and to bring snacks to share (finger food is best). Please bring a check to renew/join the THC for 2014, if you have not already.

The Takoma Horticultural Club (THC) welcomes gardeners from Takoma Park and surrounding areas, including DC, Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and beyond. Our members love gardening, have very diverse interests and gardening experience, and enjoy many activities throughout the year. The THC Program includes two plant exchanges, two potluck dinners, a local garden tour, workshops, lectures, special trips, and even a free garden consultation. Although many of our events are open to the public, more than half are for members only. And for $12, you can’t go wrong! Join us and increase your gardening pleasure!

The THC email list is open to all and is used to exchange information about gardening. You do not have to belong to the club to join in our email conversation! To join, simply follow the instructions.
