Those attending the seminar will receive seed packets from the museum’s gardens and have the chance to win one of three outstanding heirloom gardening books as well as the opportunity to purchase limited edition, handmade redware flower pots created by the museum’s master potter available exclusively at Genesee Country Village & Museum. In addition, the museum’s Flint Hill Store, offering unique gifts including items handmade by village artisans, will be open for seminar attendees to shop.
