Winston-Salem Green Heart

The cool, spiral metal sides of the Renoolda Gardens will rise as soon as Google Maps “arrives.” The ferns grow around the base of the rock, and behind the glass walls are warm green fruits. A beautiful history book, a vivid reminder of the early twentieth century in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the construction of soil, curiosity, and treasures.

Arjen Reynolds, a tobacco magnifier owned by Catherine Reynolds in the early 1900s, set the stage for a tour of this ever-growing city of tobacco. The barren city has done a remarkable job of protecting its natural resources and caring for the next generation of farmers. I came here to revisit the gardens I learned here a few years ago, here at the Southern Garden History Association conference, and to spend more time with the gardeners themselves. Together with my mother, who studied plant science at the University of Florida, we set out on our first adventure together since the outbreak. While historic gardens still dominate Winston-Salem, as we will soon recall, plants and plants have a way of surprising you.

“Catherine was a progressive, visionary at the time,” says John Rotling, director of Rhinolda Gardens. Along the way, my mother read passages from the book The world of her own creativity – Katherine Smith Reynolds and the landscape of Renolda, And now Rotting brings the pages to life. He describes how Reynolds made a fortune by building a self-supporting farm with an English-speaking village on more than a thousand acres of Carolina. Her home, now an art museum, is still technically the world’s largest Bungalo. Alongside it, she designed regular gardens, experimented with Spaniard pearls and apple trees, and still planted Japanese cedar seeds that lead her eyes to the greenhouse.

Today, Rotting is running Reynolds’ big plan as it translates into public green space needs. His staff will follow the paths of the jungle and once graze the Reynolds family golf course at the entrance to the house. When boxwoods threatened the recently erected fence, Rotling found a fragrant tea plant called Princess Party, which had the same size as the leaves and grew as a strong substitute, which the pioneering Reynolds were proud of. “It is impossible to tie a garden in time,” he says.

We will be driving two quick turns into our drills over the weekend, according to former RJ Reynolds tobacco company chairman. Royal Grill Estate, completed in 1932. Jimmy Carter and Oprah Winfrey lead to the rugged cottages and footpaths, up to 55 acres[5 ha]of hills and gardens. “I want to have something that blooms and flows all year round,” says landscape sage Kevin Cook. He happily visits us outside the main dormitory, surrounded by flower beds, to the rented gardeners’ hut, and to the secret pocket garden next to the useless meeting hall. Here, ferns and charcoal flowers float in the shade of a Japanese maple.

Flowers in the historic Betabara Park.

The next morning, dew was spotted on a small white chamomile leaf in a nearby medicinal plant in the country’s historic Betabara Park, where Moravian doctors produced herbs. In the mid-1700’s, the Moravian brothers of the German-speaking sect formed a community here, just six miles[6 km]south of Salem. In the village of Bbara, the distiller’s house, the colonial church, and the brick hut seem to have been torn from the stories of the Grim Brothers, and the surrounding gardens illuminate the unique Moravian design in the diagonal rows.

But even in this strong tradition, modern gardeners have an opinion. Locals occupy one of the country’s oldest community gardens with linen, pruning and watermelon. The early Moravians planted large apple orchards, and every September Betabara hosted a popular Apple Festival hosted by local farmers, to visit the park and take a short walk to Ethereal Hill Cemetery called God Acre.

Rich greens in the wild Salem.

Where the director of horticulture, Eric Jackson, meets with our single brothers’ garden, the history of Moravia before the marriage of Moravian men continues to the city center. Jackson, who grew up in the Moravian Church, had virtually forgotten seeds in his gardens, such as that of a local family named Shut. More recently, it has looked back at local history, especially in the region’s once-grown native trees, as well as indigenous squash, beans, and corn.

The myth, described by the Moravian settlers in the suburbs of Piedmont, North Carolina, is truly an ancient ecosystem that has been inhabited by Indigenous people for thousands of years. Old Salem works with the Cherokee Advisory Committee, and Jackson has been cultivating additional regional varieties such as papaya, black walnut and willow oak. “I want to show that it is possible to have mature houseplants in an urban area, so people say,“ What can I do? . ” I could say, ‘You can plant a tree.’ Those oak trees that we all love have many intrinsic value not only for us but for the whole food chain.

Saving Old Salem Seed.

Beyond downtown, new green spaces show how open today’s gardeners are to experiment. Founded by the sons of the late Ford car dealership in honor of his father’s natural love and community, ten-year-old Paul J. Sinner in Kernerville seems to be smarter than his age, a collection of trees and a decorated wooden box designed by the famous North Carolina landscape architect chip Calaway. A magnificent mosaic fence with four hundred acres of witches, yes, tea, olive and pomegranate gardens, a small hectare of seven hectares to be planted as part of a vase, useful labels on pollen plants and cranium flowers and silk flowers Indogo. Two eye-catching curves immediately remind me of South Carolina’s expensive high-end artist Pearl Frien. “These they are Mr. Friar, ”said Josh Williams, the garden’s manager. “Pearl visited and recorded these, and sometimes I wonder if people take the work seriously or simply forget it. I took that in my heart, and I want to take care of him as he wants. ”

A similar estimate for the people behind the plant was cut by Leslie Rose, a North Carolina Coalition Extension Agent in Clementon, Aleppo, and the garden, which is controlled by North Carolina Cooperative Extension Agency Leslie Rose. Rose volunteers often spend time in the darkest part of the arborutuma: only local plants in the mountainous garden, ferns, three yeast trillion and American Westeria wines. Another popular North Carolina native bends over in a boogie garden — fleshless peach plants in stunning lime green, pink and yellow. Wheelchair volunteers Darle Shaw grow up in a special high-rise plant to accommodate a place that has grown over ten years.

While driving out of town, my mother and I were enjoying a taste of Winston-Salem garden in a hot piece of tomato cake at the Mozilla Bistro. From the fresh basil in the garden of Ff in the beautiful Spring House Restaurant. We will be visiting the Apple Festival in Betabara, or next April, to the Garden Club Secret Garden.

“We have a lot of work to do,” says my mother. No gardener can do so much on his own. And they are not. Everyone who found plants and thorns in conversation with previous gardeners. But they also hope to produce their own fruit, sow their own dreams, and grow beyond their own.
