Learn how the global blueberry industry got its start in the hands and heart of a woman named Elizabeth C. White. (Joe’s Aunt Lizzy)
Elizabeth White (portrayed by Brenda Conner, wife of Elizabeth’s great-nephew) will share some memories from her childhood, her involvement in her father’s cranberry farm and business, and her experiences in developing the cultivated blueberry, and founding a new agricultural industry. She will also discuss some of her lesser-known interests and achievements.
Then Elizabeth will take you on a bus tour of Whitesbog Farm Village, and tell you about the village her father founded from the family’s point of view. Finally, Elizabeth White will invite you into her home, known as Suningive.
The content of this program in compiled from family diaries & letters, Elizabeth’s own speeches and writings, recorded interviews and other primary sources.
Brenda will tell you about the health benefits of this delicious native Pine Barrens berry and let you taste products created in her own kitchen from the blueberry varieties that came from Elizabeth White’s own hand.
Expect to spend approximately 2 hours immersed in everything blueberry!
