Deutschheim Demonstration Garden

Deutschheim’s German four-square Gemusegarten is planted with heirloom varieties, as the 19th century German immigrants would have done, incorporating flowers among the vegetables for beauty and for practicality. A bee skep maker will be at work, tour guides will be in period costume, and there will be handouts on 19th-century gardening.

A silent auction and luncheon will be held at the Rotunda Building in the City Park on Friday, June 3. Reservations are required. Call or email Bartow Molloy at 573-294-6242, bartowmolloy@centurytel.net.
