OOLOGAH, Okla. — The Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch will host Family Day on Saturday, April 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. Jacob Krumwiede, Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch manager, will introduce families to preparing and planting kitchen gardens. In a spot behind the ranch house, Krumwiede will describe the purpose of a kitchen garden, vegetables and herbs that would have been planted by Will Rogers’s mother and how that produce would have been used.
