“Gardening at the Fort” Second Saturday Demo *Canceled*
April 11, 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
This event has been canceled.
Fort Towson Historic Site will host “Gardening at the Fort,” the next in its Second Saturday Demo series, on Saturday, April 11, from 1 to 3 p.m. This program will cover the three main gardens of the fort from 1824 to 1854: the hospital garden, the officers’ garden, and the company garden. Participants will learn why certain crops were chosen and how they were grown without commercial chemicals. Visitors will have the opportunity to help the staff to plant the fort’s educational garden while the staff answers questions about the process.
