Stories from a Connecticut Kitchen Garden <br/> <br/>Settle in for a treat as kitchen gardener and raconteur, Pamela Page, shares the story of her obsession. In Pamela's 10,000 square foot kitchen garden at her private Ho Hum Hollow Farm, she grows almost 200 different kinds of fruits and vegetables, everything from the usual farmer's market produce to rare or heirloom varieties. A sought-after kitchen garden designer and educator, as well as a documentary filmmaker, Pamela traces the evolution of her own kitchen garden to share inspirations and challenges, plus favorite techniques and varieties. "I've got so many jars in my cupboards, my freezers are so packed, that you could mistake me for a survivalist. But in the coldest months of the year, when I reach as I routinely do, for my own tomato sauce or soup, one of last year's butternut squash, a pumpkin, a giant jar of pickles, roasted peppers, a fruit preserve, or even a head of garlic, I couldn't feel happier, or prouder, to have a kitchen garden." <br/> <br/>To help fuel Pamela's clarion call, local Turtle Tree Seed will be selling their favorite varieties of certified organic and biodynamic, 100% open-pollinated seeds both just before and just after this lecture. <br/> <br/><b>Fee: Tickets will be available at the door, and are $30 for Cary Institute, Garden Conservancy, and Innisfree members; $35 for the general public. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. </b><br/> <br/> <br/> <br/>
