Food in the Garden at American History

The Smithsonian National Museum of American History is hosting a series of evening events this summer called “Food in the Garden”

Food in the Garden Join us this summer for tastes, tours, and talks outside in the new Victory Garden on the east side of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History! The Museum’s American Food History Project and Smithsonian Gardens are bringing together local growers, practitioners, educators, and researchers to explore and experience where our food comes from and how we grow it. Enjoy evenings of locally produced food, drinks, and dynamic conversation in a relaxed garden atmosphere on Thursday evenings starting on July 18 and ending on Julia Child’s 101st birthday, August 15.

  • July 18, 2013, Heirlooms: Old, New, Local, Global
  • July 25, 2013, Foraging: Finding Food at Your Feet
  • August 1, 2013, Grow Now: Local Growers Spill the Beans
  • August 8, 2013, Pay Dirt
  • August 15, 2013, Celebrate Julia Child’s 101st Birthday!

Tickets are $20 each or $80 for the series, and each ticket includes two cocktails featuring Green Hat Gin and WildCraft Soda, with food from local farms.

Living in the city, I don’t do much gardening beyond the odd herb planting here and there, but this sounds like a fascinating series for anyone who’s a fan of locally grown produce and the farm-to-table movement.
