The Food at the First Thanksgiving

Master Gardeners Present: The Food at the First Thanksgiving

The Penn State Master Gardeners of Lawrence County are presenting a talk about the gardening practices of the Pilgrims and Native Americans at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15.

The presentation is titled: “No Mashed Potatoes!? A Historical Look at the Foraged and Cultivated Food of the First Thanksgiving”

Were potatoes, dinner rolls, and pumpkin pie at the first celebration? From wild edibles to cultivated vegetables, we will look at methods of growing and harvesting that lead to the bountiful feast. Gleaning from the past, what methods are useful for modern growing?

Come join us for a fun and interactive evening of learning. The event is free and open to the public.
