Salute to George Washington Carver for Black History Month

Participate in a salute to the most famous botanist of the first half of the 20 Century.

Participate in a salute to the most famous botanist of the first half of the 20 Century. This is a fitting end to Black History Month. Come and pay homage to “The Peanut Man”. Hear how a former slave reversed generations of ruinous farming practices.

Dr. Carver was born “Carver’s George”. Later his landlord, Mariah Watkins, said, “No your name is George Carver.” Much later he added the middle name Washington to honor his personal hero the first president.

Note: This is not the U.S. president but Booker T. Washington the first president of Tuskegee College in Alabama.

Don’t treat your crop soil like dirt”. Repeated planting of cotton or tobacco starves the spoil of vital nutrients. Regenerative crops like peanuts, soybeans and sweet potatoes naturally rebuild the soil in a natural process. The Washington / Carter relationship was frequently rocky but full of mutual respect. This is a must see event.
