In the Garden

Wednesday, December 18, 2019

In 1686, a Dutch sea captain arrived in Norfolk's harbor clutching a weathered oaken chest containing a papyrus scroll which had originated from somewhere near the Euphrates River. According to rumors, the scroll was part of a collection of writings by Semiramis, the queen who had created the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Written on it were tips for fighting weevils. The captain's name is lost to us, but before disappearing into the mists of time he gave his treasure to a man named Hiram Phineas Orband, distant ancestor of our own Jim Orband. We will read the scroll together on the air. Join us and share your questions by phone or on our Facebook page.

Today's Guests:

Jim Orband - Senior Extension Agent Emeritus
Katie Cullipher - Hampton Roads Planning District Commission
