The Harmonist Connection

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


            The next Harmonist Connection webinar will be on Wednesday, February 22 at 7 p.m. It will be all about Harmonist Gardening—a timely topic since several Museum board members are applying for a grant to make the Museum flower beds a showcase of plants used by the Harmonists for food seasoning, healing, and cloth dyeing. The webinar is free, but you must preregister to get the Zoom link to the presentation.

Hear from New Harmony resident Kent Schuette and Old Economy Village volunteer, Joe Pulgini as they share the work that goes into maintaining a modern garden while drawing on the traditions of the Harmonists.

Kent Schuette is a professor emeritus of Purdue University, having served 45 years on the faculty in Purdue’s Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture. In 2020, Kent was asked to become the David Lenz House Garden manager, a position he continues to hold with the Colonial Dames in the State of Indiana.

Joe Pulgini has served on the Board of Directors for Old Economy Village since 2011. He has volunteered in the gardens for 8 years, working to keep the grounds beautiful and the harvest bountiful.
