Program Description

Theme: Fall's approaching Join The Victory Garden as we take a step back into the past when we visit Wisconsin's Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum and Gardens. Inspired by the Tuscan landscape, this formal Renaissance-style garden sweeps down to Lake Michigan and features a dramatic "scaletta di aqua" (water stairway), secret gardens, and important restoration and design lessons. Then, we'll get a lesson on using garden antiques in your own home landscape. A visit to the beautiful herb gardens at Boerner Botanical in Milwaukee teaches us about historical uses for herbs, and with chef Jacques Haeringer, author of Two for Tonight, we learn how to create a salmon dish with a fresh herb mayonnaise.
