CRANFORD, NJ - On Tuesday, April 19 at 7:30 PM, please join the Hanson Park Conservancy as we welcome Barbara Melera and her presentation, “The D. Landreth Seed Co. and the Story of America’s Great Seedhouses.”   Did you know that the spinach you eat today was developed in 1826; that the information contained in seed catalogs taught generations of Americans how to farm and live off the land; that in 1798 the first zinnia seeds were sold in America?  This program traces the history of the seed trade in America from 1784 when the first seedhouse establishment was opened  through the 20th century.  Every registered guest will receive a free D. Landreth sunflower seed packet.  Please register at www.hansonparkconservancy.com at least one week prior to event date to ensure your free gift.
