LAKE GENEVA — Black Point Estate and Horticultural Hall continue their winter lecture series with a gardening program by Marcia C. Carmichael, historical gardens coordinator at Old World Wisconsin. Carmichael’s presentation is at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at Horticultural Hall, 330 Broad St.

Sharing her passion for plants, gardens and historical accuracy, Carmichael will speak of the rich ethnic diversity of Wisconsin’s early settlers, their treasured plants and their favorite culinary and gardening traditions. Attendees will take a visual stroll through re-created 19th century gardens and discover some much-loved heirloom plants. “The plants and gardens our ancestors grew tell stories about their way of life, connect us with our family roots and offer inspiration for today’s gardeners,” Carmichael said in a news release.

“Marcia is delightful and really enjoys sharing her joy of plants, historical gardening and plant-based folklore with everyone she meets,” said Dave Desimone, director of Black Point Estate. “We think this is a perfect program to offer at Horticultural Hall and it will also allow us to share some exciting news about the soon-to-be installed woodland garden at Black Point.”

For more information about the lecture series, go online to www.blackpointestate.org. To purchase tickets, call 262-248-1888.
