Online: Winter Workshop- Planting By the Signs in Appalachia
January 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us on zoom for a look at the history of planting by the astrological signs in Appalachia. Though antiquated, this interesting historical practice held sway, and still does, throughout the mountain South. We will cover how this practice migrated to and fully blossomed in the region, and how you can live more closely to the Earth by employing this ancient gardening technique yourself! Participants will receive an informative PDF from the instructor.
Cost: $10 for museum members, $15 for non-members. Some fees apply.
