Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello


Celebrate the legacy of revolutionary gardener Thomas Jefferson during the 8th annual Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello, September 12-13, 2014. Thomas Jefferson, America’s “First foodie,” championed vegetable cuisine, plant experimentation and sustainable agriculture.

Taste a bounty of heirloom fruits and vegetables and learn about organic gardening and seed-saving during this fun, affordable, family-friendly festival—unlike any other—held on the breathtaking West Lawn of Jefferson’s Monticello.

 NEW this year.  Celebrate not only the substance, but the style Jefferson brought to the new nation, with a series of workshops and programs on the Art of Living!
