Emma Seniuk "Dexter Days"

Emma is currently the cut flower and vegetable gardener at Chanticleer in Wayne Pennsylvania.

"Like most gardeners, I’ve loved plants since I was a child.  Over the years I have worked at a variety of jobs- nurseries, landscaping, beekeeping, helping to manage a Christmas tree farm but once I was introduced to public horticulture I was drawn in, hook, line and sinker.  I worked at Mt. Cuba Center as a seasonal, Longwood as a student, volunteered at Chanticleer over the years, had a year and half long studentship at Great Dixter and now am fortunate enough to be full time at Chanticleer."

Heirloom Vegetables and Cooking.
Food historian William Woys Weaver has been gardening with heirloom varieties since he was a boy.

Today, Weaver’s collection includes over 4,000 varieties of flowers, fruits and vegetables.
