Date: September 22, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
The 12th Annual Heritage Harvest Festival, hosted by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in partnership with Seed Savers Exchange and Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, celebrates Jefferson’s legacy, and the contributions to American cuisine by enslaved workers, in a family-friendly, exciting, affordable and fun-filled atmosphere, promoting gardening, sustainability, local food, and the preservation of heritage plants. The 2018 Heritage Harvest Festival will be held on Saturday, September 22, at Monticello: on the historic West Lawn, in the vegetable garden, and in the LEED-certified Visitor Center. The venue provides a beautiful showcase for the restored gardens and features the wealth of Monticello’s programs in not just gardening, but also natural history, foodways, and the roles of the entire plantation community.
