Ball-Sellers House


Join us at the Ball-Sellers House as we help celebrate Urban Gardening with the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) and historical reenactor and AFAC gardener Sandy Newton will demonstrate each step from pretty blue-flowered flax in the garden to breaking, carding, spinning, and weaving. Learn how colonial gardeners tilled, fertilized, and nurtured their food and herb gardens. The Ball-Sellers House will be open for free tours starting at 10:00 am and Sandy Newton will speak at 1:00 about producing fabric from flax.  We’ll have some tasty colonial treats and beverages. AFAC gardeners will show you their garden handiwork and offer tips on growing your own. Several AFAC gardens will also be open elsewhere in the county.
