4/27 – Amazing Varieties with Richard Duffy

April 27, 2017

Sanborn House, 15 High Street, Winchester, MA

Refreshments: 7:00 PM ~ Program: 7:30 PM



Arlington (one of Winchester’s “mother towns”) was famous for its market gardens.  Arlington names were borne by produce grown throughout the region, and eventually nationwide, as it achieved renown for the seeds of new produce varieties developed by horticultural leaders there.  This deliciously illustrated lecture is a treat for connoisseurs of heirloom veggies!

Richard A. Duffy has written extensively on a wide array of regional historical topics, including tide mills, and is a historic preservation consultant.  Mr. Duffy is a proud graduate of Winchester High School and has appeared in recent seasons of PBS’s ‘This Old House.’
