Penn State Alumni Magazine described Mr. Richman as the “Godfather of the Museum Profession in Central Pennsylvania,” since many of his former students have been placed in our regional museums. A popular speaker, he is also the author of over 25 books.
“Growing Yesterday’s Gardens” is about the growth of the heirloom seed movement, the traditional garden forms of the Pennsylvania Germans and the history of seed culture and seed marketing in America. Much of the material is adapted from two of the author’s books: Pennsylvania German Farms, Gardens, and Seedsand Seed Art: The Package Made Me Buy It.
