The Historical Society is having their FREE Annual Farm Day at the Welles-Shipman-Ward-House. This is a popular event for the entire family, which includes historic demonstrations, colonial games, a petting zoo and more.
GPIP will have a table where guests of all ages can make small bouquets of dried flowers to take home. GPIP grows the flowers in the Colonial Kitchen Garden especially for this event. Jennifer Sherman, a GPIP member and the Project Chair, dries the flowers for visitors to use. Visitors can also help harvest the Colonial Kitchen garden and pick tobacco. Tobacco was once a crop important to the economy of Glastonbury.
