Mulberry Row Weekend at Monticello

The garden comes alive with costumed interpreters demonstrating 19th-century cooking techniques and gardening methods at the African American Gardens and Foodways event at Monticello. Visitors can earn how to use period gardening tools, pull weeds from Jefferson’s garden, and help harvest seasonable vegetables by hand. Monticello gardeners share their expertise on seed varieties and how food moved from garden to table during Jefferson’s time. Kids can clean and sort seeds at our Mountaintop Activity Center and plant their own flower to take home with them. Enjoy stories of plantation community life and join guided tours of Monticello’s gardens and Mulberry Row. Thomas Jefferson Parkway (Rt. 53). 984-7529.
