October at Applewood: All About Gutters and Preserving Food

Event Details

Join us for October at Applewood every Saturday to learn about how and why we care for the grounds, house, and collections at Applewood. Learn new skills you can use at home or in your community as we explore how caring for our yards and gardens or preserving our history are important forms of civic participation. Drop in anytime from noon to 3 p.m.

Food Preservation: The Motts preserved a variety of foods grown at Applewood so they could enjoy them throughout the winter. Explore some of the ways you can preserve food today to help make your harvest last.

Gutters: Have you cleaned out your gutters this fall? We’ll go over the basics of preparing a house – historic or otherwise – for the winter season related to gutters, downspouts, and the best ways to keep your home safe from moisture.

Please note: All October at Applewood sessions are outdoors. Some programs may be canceled or adjusted in case of poor weather.
