July Garden Lecture Series


July 9, 10:30 AM. Cullman Performance Hall
Our July garden lecture series, Saturday, July 9th, features Bryce Lane, three-time Emmy Award winning television personality, presenting “History of Gardening: How Cultures, Events, and People Made Gardening What it is Today.”

Who is considered the father of American Horticulture and why? How did the greenhouse get it’s start? How did the tulip end up in Holland? Come join us as we learn about the historical events, peoples, and cultures that helped to make gardening what it is today. There are countless stories about how plants were discovered, gardening techniques invented, and new ideas conceived. By deepening our understanding and appreciation for garden history, we will, in turn, be better gardeners ourselves! This lecture begins at 10:30 AM in Cullman Performance Hall at the North Carolina History Center. This program is generally funded by Mitchell Hardware.
