  • Sea Island Gardening Weekend featuring author Wesley Greene and Chef Travis Brust

    September 5 - September 6, 2014

    This weekend is a new twist on the popular farm-to-table movement of not only growing one’s own vegetables but using our ancestors’ techniques to produce healthy foods.  Learn from Wesley Greene, who specializes in using 18th century gardening methods at Colonial Williamsburg, Chef Jordan Poteat, and Evan James who oversee the Broadfield Gardens, where Sea Island grows many of the vegetables used in our restaurants, and Chef Travis Brust from the Williamsburg Inn.

    Wesley Greene
    Greene, author of VEGETABLE GARDENING the Colonial Williamsburg way, 18th century methods for today’s organic gardeners, has gardened with heirloom plants at Colonial Williamsburg for over 30 years.  In 1996 he founded the Colonial Garden and Garden Shop where costumed employees interpret 18th century plants, tools and cultural techniques.   

    Chef Travis Brust
    Promoted to Executive Chef for the Williamsburg Inn in 2011 at the age of 29, Chef Brust has been instrumental in creating the hotel’s restaurant menus as well as meals for dignitaries and royalty during his career at the Inn, which began in 2002.  Previously, he held a variety of posts across the country, winning multiple competitions and honors, including being named 2013 Chef of the Year by the Virginia Chefs Association.

    Gardening Under Cover with Wesley Greene
