George Washington Carver

"I was born in Diamond Grove, Missouri, about the close of the Great Civil War in a little one room shanty in the home of Mr. Moses Carver.  When I was just a mere tot . . . I literally lived in the woods.  I wanted to know every strange stone, flower, insect, bird or beast."
 
-George Washington Carver-


Far side of The Garden is a special place 
provided by contributions from large corporations.
In Primary Education
we were taught a LOT about 
George Washington Carver.
California was Farmer oriented then
and George Washington Carver was 
Celebrated.
 
I started thinking about this post some time ago,
Today I received a terrific, in-depth article 
On George Washington Carver
 
So, I'll give you the link and follow the little path home.
 

love & love,
💙

An agricultural scientist and inventor. I do remember reading about him in my Botanyy class. It is good to see a beautiful garden dedicated to a scientist who has contributed much to society. Thanks for the pictures.
