Virtual Summer Saturdays: Garden

August 22 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Looking for some history at home?  Summer Saturdays is a great opportunity to get hands-on with history.  People of all social levels needed to save seeds in the 18th century.  Enslaved workers, tenant farmers, and others needed to save seeds to ensure they could feed their families in the coming year.  The Mason family oversaw laborers who saved seeds for their garden and their cash crops.    This week, learn how to save seeds from your garden to grow next year.

Our Summer Saturday sessions will be recorded.  By registering for the event, you agree that your voice and image may appear in Gunston Hall’s digital materials.

Event Registration

This event is complimentary, but advance registration is required.  Multiple attendees may participate using a single device, so a family needs to register only once to attend.  Individuals who will be using the same device do not need  to register separately.

You will receive your Zoom login information in your registration confirmation email.  

Can’t make it that day?  We’re recording the sessions and will post them here after the live event.


If you would like to follow along with us during the program, you will need to collect the following supplies from around your house.  Some materials are available to download and print from this page: (links coming soon!)
