FAIRFIELD — The Ogden House will feature its revamped Colonial Kitchen Garden and beehives later this month, thanks in part to Fairfield Garden Club member Whitney Vose.
Vose, an expert grower and avid colonial plant enthusiast, serves as the docent for the Ogden House Kitchen Garden. She helped guide club members to bring the garden back to life beginning in 2011. Newly renovated this year, the kitchen garden has over 60 culinary, household, and medicinal plants dating back to the colonial period. The design and plan is faithful to what Jane Ogden, the home’s original tenant, might have had in her kitchen.
