Growing & Propagating Heirlooms Plants

Gates open at Noon, program begins at 1:00 pm

Talk with experts about growing and propagating heirloom plants. Chris Hardy will discuss the importance of growing and saving heirloom bi-regionally adapted seeds. You’ll also learn about plant propagation from Brad Smith, and botanist Gretchen Vos will talk about the importance of naturalized gardens for Monarch butterflies.


Beginning May 26, and every Sunday thereafter, up to and including September 2, enjoy a Sunday afternoon at Hanley Farm. Spend a relaxing afternoon, escape the summer heat in the shade of the Hanley trees, bring a picnic, take a docent-led tour of the historic Hanley House, or take a self-guided farm tour, enhanced with brochures about the unique plantings and the Hanley Family history. And every week there’s a different event. May 26, you’ll be able to talk with experts about growing and propagating heirloom plants. In June there will be horses! The Renaissance Riders join us, along with a variety of crafts and jewelry vendors. In July you won’t want to miss the Bluegrass Circle Jam and barbeque. Something new every Sunday!
