All freedom-lovers are invited to the Freedom Garden picnic to celebrate what we all crave so dearly … to celebrate what drove our Founding Fathers to strike out on their own … FREEDOM! With battle lines drawn in the dirt of our backyards, patios, or whatever available place, we will take the WWII Victory Garden to even greater heights. Americans still have a strong connection to the land. It resonates with the idea of freedom.
George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and Ben Franklin all shared an extensive interest in farming. Frankly, we’d have loved to be guests at the Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and Madison family tables. You may know that Thomas Jefferson’s favorite food was macaroni and pea salad. There was actually something that James Madison loved to eat. Madison loved ice cream. Washington, the Father of Our Country enjoyed nuts and cherries. Ben Franklin had a yen for pickles. It all sounds good to us so we will be providing some of these favorites in addition to the All-American favorite, the hot dog. Bring one of your favorite picnic foods to share and come and enjoy an afternoon of games, speakers with important messages, and join together in a homegrown revolution.
