The award winning book Heirloom Vegetable Gardening (1996) moved the conversation about heirloom food plants from a specialty niche into the mainstream discourse on food - where it comes from, its cultural value, and its role in regional cuisines. Author William Woys Weaver, Ph.D. will focus on the Roughwood Seed Archive on which the book is based, its goals, and how you, as a home gardener, can benefit from Heirloom Vegetable Gardening and its timeless advice. Celebrate the relaunch of this pioneering book with a new format, photography, and many new plant entries. Join Dr. Weaver for a book signing and questions after the talk.
