Seed to Stalk
If you’re driving around coastal Virginia in June, stop by the Jamestown Settlement, 2110 Jamestown Road, Route 31 South, Williamsburg, Virginia (map), and Yorktown Victory Center, 200 Water Street, Yorktown, Virginia (map) for “Seed to Stalk” theme month.
Explore American agriculture of the 17th and 18th centuries from June 1 through 30, 2012, with hands-on activities such as helping to tend and water plants, plus special programs at both sites.
Varieties of crops and herbs and vegetables grown in the 17th and 18th centuries are cultivated at Jamestown Settlement’s re-created Powhatan Indian village and 1610-14 English colonial fort and at the Yorktown Victory Center’s re-created 1780s farm.
