Mann Library's Beyond the Garden Wall Exhibit

Throughout human history, wild foods have sustained the hungry and delighted the connoisseur. The Mann Library exhibit “Beyond the Garden Gate: Wild Foods from Page to Plate,” which opened reunion weekend, celebrates both the lore and natural his­tory of foraged foods.

Explore historical illustrations from Mann’s collections and learn about wild foods including fiddle­head ferns, May apples, and cattails.

The exhibit was funded by the Bond­areff Family Fund for Mann Library, the Elizabeth (Betty) L. Rowley Fund at Mann Library, and the Mann Library Excellence Fund.
