In September, the Heritage Harvest Festival is held at Monticello. The famous home of the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. He was an avid gardener and a collector of plants and seeds.
His home is a World Heritage Site. When we went we enjoyed a lecture by P. Allen Smith from PBS television.
We also enjoyed a tour of Thomas Jefferson’s collection of trees from around the world spread through out the property.
Of course we took a tour of the mansion and a tour of the vegetable garden.
Plus we got to enjoy tasting a wonderful harvest from the local area at the Heritage Harvest Festival.
“Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.” – Thomas Jefferson
