Garden Club speaker focuses on evolving food availability

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

HARVARD — The Garden Club of Harvard will begin its meeting Monday, Sept. 24, with guest speaker Meg Muckenhoupt, an environmental and travel writer.

Her work has been featured in the Boston Globe, the Boston Phoenix, Boston Magazine, and the Time Out Boston guide; her book, “Boston Gardens and Green Spaces” (Union Park Press, 2010) is a Boston Globe Local Bestseller. Meg’s lecture is titled “Eating what you grow 1620-2012.”

This overview of how farmers’ choice of crops has reflected the Bay State’s changing climate, transportation, economics and food fashions reveals just how much has changed since the Pilgrims started stewing succotash.

This talk includes a hand-out with lists of heirloom vegetables and recipes worth reviving. The meeting will begin at 11:15 a.m. at St. Theresa’s Church, 15 Still River Road, and is open to the public. Lunch and a business meeting will precede the speaker. New members are welcome.
