William Woys Weaver: Lecture and Book Signing

April 28 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Lecture and Book Signing

Heirloom Vegetable Gardening: Regional Foods in a Changing Climate
by Author William Woys Weaver, Ph.D.
Saturday, April 28, 10:30am – noon

The award-winning book Heirloom Vegetable Gardening (1996) moved the conversation about heirloom
food plants from a specialty niche into the mainstream discourse on food—where it comes from, its cultural
value, and its role in regional cuisines.

Author William Woys Weaver, Ph.D., will focus on the Roughwood Seed Archive (on which the book is based),
its goals, and how you, as a home gardener, can benefit from Heirloom Vegetable Gardening and its timeless advice.

Celebrate the relaunch of this pioneering book with new photography, and many new plant entries. Join Dr. Weaver
for a book signing and questions after the talk. $20 members, $30 non-members.
