The Pioneer Garden

Saturday, May 19, 2018 9:00 am - Sunday, November 4, 2018 9:00 am
Location: Western Historic Trails Center
Description: "The Pioneer Garden" is a living exhibit that showcases how settlers grew vegetables and other plants they used for survival. Iowa's early settlers typically grew vegetables with seeds they brought from back east or traded with other homesteaders, travelers and native tribes. Some vegetables that Americans enjoy today trace their roots to the 1500s and 1600s. A variety of vegetables will be grown and displayed in a raised garden bed inside the Trails Center. Visit us and learn more about pioneer gardening. The garden can be seen 9 am-4 pm, Thursday-Sunday. Admission is free and open to the public.
