The History of Gardening

The home garden has become an essential element of American life.  Whether the garden contains flowers, vegetables, or landscaping, people seem to have a need to channel their “inner farmer.”  Gardening has a long and fascinating history.  This presentation will examine how gardens have changed through history, important gardening innovations and their inventors, and the intrepid plant explorers who discovered some of our most popular garden plants.
