The Green Picture: Thomas Jefferson's Organic Garden
Somewhere, Thomas Jefferson is looking down on the newly planted White House garden and scoffing at its meagerness. His 1,000 ft. long organic garden at his Monticello estate was first created in 1770 and continues on to this day. It overlooks an eight-acre orchard of 300 trees, a vineyard, and Monticello’s berry squares, which are plots of figs, currants, gooseberries, and raspberries. For more information, jump here.
