Join Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids for an idyllic evening at Oakdale Farm, a beautiful private estate, owned by Libby and George Trammell, and featured on the National Register of Historical Places for being on the Underground Railway. Enjoy gourmet food and drink as you wander amidst the grand tree specimens and view the breathtaking perennial gardens in a tour led by renowned horticulturist David L. Culp. Learn of Oakdale’s significance from local historian Frank Mendenhall, whose family saved the lives of countless fugitive slaves.

  • Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids’ vision is to inspire and motivate youth to develop lifelong wholesome eating habits by experiencing the joy of growing, cooking, and eating garden-fresh vegetables. They are Delaware’s foremost experts on school vegetable gardening programs designed to teach science via hands-on experiences during the school day and academic year. https://healthyfoodsforhealthykids.org/

  • David L. Culp is an exceptional and renowned horticulturist, designer, lecturer, and author. His books include The Layered Garden, and soon to be released A Year at Brandywine Cottage: Six Seasons of Beauty, Bounty and Blooms. https://www.davidlculp.com/biography/. David will lead guests on an exclusive tour of the exquisite Oakdale gardens.

  • Historian and farmer Frank Mendenhall will share the rich history of Oakdale, which was part of the original land-grant charter received by William Penn from King Charles II. Mr. Mendenhall’s ancestors, Quakers Isaac and Dinah Mendenhall, established Oakdale as a safe-haven and first stop out of Delaware on the underground railroad. Oakdale was even visited by Harriet Tubman.

Join Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids for this enriching evening and to support our ambitious goal to bring a vegetable garden to every Delaware school, and “Veggie-cate the First State!”
