Focus Weekend – Okra, Peanuts, and Potatoes, 10a-4p
The garden kept by those enslaved at Barrington provided diversity to an otherwise bland diet, and more importantly filled the gaps in nutrition. Join us as explore the heirloom varieties growing in the garden in the Quarter, and take home a few seeds to start your own garden! Contact Ben Baumgartner at ben.baumgartner@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 x248 for more information.
