A Day in the Garden
Barrington Living History Farm at Washington-on-the-Brazos
You are invited to come spend a day in the garden at Barrington Living History Farm during our "Colorful Garden" weekend. See how we grow heirloom varieties of vegetables as they did in the 1850's according to Thomas Affleck from Gay Hill at Glenblythe Plantation.
Try your hand at making old fashioned crafts to take with you. Create your own botanical journal as many women of the time did. Help us harvest our rye the old fashioned way, then take a break on the dog run porch and learn about the Anson Jones family and life 160 years ago.
Also, see the final process of fabric production at Barrington Farm. We have planted, watered, weeded, picked, spun and woven our antique cotton into fabric and now we will be dying it different colors. The plants and animal products we'll be using are all natural and were common dye-stuffs in 1850, some are still used today in fabric and food dyes.
Hours are 10am-4:30pm
$5 for adults, $3 for children$5/$3
