During the Civil War, the garden was planned for spring 2022 in collaboration with friends of the Institute and the Montreal Pass.
The 14325 Buchanan Trail East is a 125-hectare natural, cultural and historical site in Washington. The park and museum await part of Pennsylvania’s second major civil war.
“The garden is still in its infancy. We are invited to partner with people at the Monterrey Pass, and one of the things they offer is the Interpretation Garden, ”said Tracy Holiday, Executive Director of the Institute. With financial support, we ordered construction materials in May.
Construction on the $ 9,000 project began in August. Initial plans were to open a garden in September, but the supply was delayed until spring 2022.

According to Pam Rowland, director of education at the institute, the plan is to help visitors and school teams understand and imagine what a garden looked like in the 1860s and the care that came with it.
“We will have seasonal vegetables, herbs and herbs, as well as annual and annual flower beds,” says Rowland. We wanted to use the garden to show them how important they were in our daily lives, where they had so much to produce.
The garden locust is 25 by 28 feet long, and when completed will show six high beds and a flower bed.
“There will be ongoing maintenance, and the establishment of the garden is just the beginning. The plant will oversee the maintenance of the garden with the Blue Ridge Summit Garden Club. ”
“We are very happy to have found the institute and feel privileged,” said Darwin Seiler, a board member of Montreal Pass Battlefield Park. They were great to work with and we look forward to opening the garden in the spring. »
