The Grumblethorpe youth farmers learned all about pollinating by hand today. Since our glass gem corn is so sparsely planted, in order to ensure pollination, and therefore production of ears of corn, we needed to remove the flowers and use those to “paint“ the silks of the ears of corn to come.

Grumblethorpe Historic House & Garden will be at Cliveden and their site will be open during the festival! Grumblethorpe was the historic home of the Wister family. During the British occupation of Philadelphia, the Wisters – who were Quakers – left Philadelphia; Grumblethorpe was then used as British General Agnew’s headquarters during the Battle of Germantown.

At the Revolutionary Germantown Festival, visit Grumblethorpe’s table to learn about the Wisters, those who couldn’t leave Philadelphia, and what life was like during the occupation of Philadelphia. Grumblethorpe’s house and grounds will be open from 12pm to 4pm. Tour the house and gardens!

For the full festival schedule, visit https://cliveden.org/festival-schedule/.
