Centennial Day of Service: Plantation Agriculture Museum

Meeting Place: Museum
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Gardens have been important to the people of this area throughout history--- they've been sources of food for the first American Indians to farm on this land, they've supplemented the diets of impoverished tenant farmers and sharecroppers, and they've provided a connection to their home for relocated Japanese-American farmers during the Second World War. Today at Plantation Agriculture Museum, we maintain a vegetable garden to share the stories of all of those people who farmed this land before us. 
We invite you to come out to the museum to lend a hand tending to the gardens. Work opportunities may vary based on garden and weather conditions, but watering and feeding plants as well as weeding around vegetable plants in a raised bed are among the chores that may be performed. In addition, we would like to recognize the beginning of Pollinator Week and the importance of bees' role in agriculture by constructing a few native solitary bee homes. Native solitary bees are great pollinators of gardens. Help us make them feel at home in the gardens at Plantation Agriculture Museum!  #ARStateParks100
