The museum’s spring community picnic, held at the carriage house grounds, was a rousing success, with live music, beautiful weather, and demos at the Victory Garden. Picknickers relaxed, ate, listened to live music, and tasted homemade gazpacho made with fresh herbs from the garden. The Victory Garden was restructured over the winter to reflect recycling as well as McFaddin history; the flagstones around the border came from the former site of the pond between the historic oaks, and the wine bottles hark to the beer bottles that once lined the kitchen garden beds. The event inspired a new museum program: “Roots ‘N Shoots” which combines a family picnic with an educational foodways programs at the Victory Garden. The first Roots ‘N Shoots event will be June 28, from 5:30-7:30 on the carriage house grounds.
