Taste of Plum Grove

The gardens at Plum Grove are producing a harvest! The Johnson County Master Gardeners are preparing a feast to celebrate the three bountiful gardens at Plum Grove that are what remain of Friendly Lucas’ three historical gardens: the Kitchen Garden, the Flower Garden, and the Wildflower Garden.

Friendly Lucas, the wife of the first Territorial Governor of Iowa, was a beloved hostess who cooked with plums, veggies, and herbs that came from these gardens. Come on over to Plum Grove and sample treats from historical recipes made of fresh green herbs and veggies found in gardens just like Friendly’s.

A recipe booklet of the historical recipes that will be served (plus additional delicious recipes not prepared for the event!) will be on sale and the Post Office Brass Band will play as you eat in style.

This event is free with a $5 suggested donation.
