Garden to Table: Traditions and Innovation features rare illustrations of gardens and their bounty dating back to the 1600s; etchings of gardens, their design and those tending them; hand colored lithographs; botanical illustrations; and 19th and early 20th century seed catalogs. The exhibit will also showcase archival materials from the founding of the Civic Garden Center, which started with Victory Gardens in 1942. In a separate gallery at the Lloyd, a crowd sourced photo exhibition, “Gardeners Who Inspire,” will grow over the course of the exhibit’s run as the community shares photos, both historic and present day, alongside framed historic photographs of local farms that practice sustainable agriculture.
