Throughout the colonial time period, gardens were cultivated not only for their beauty but as an important source for useful commodities. Join us as we explore how herbs were used in everything from tasty food dishes to medicinal concoctions. In the kitchen, watch the cooks prepare historic dishes, and young visitors can create make-and-take herbal crafts. At 1:00 pm, master gardener Jane Irvin-Klotz will present her talk “Lavender, Wow, I didn’t know that!” Experience the many practical, and pretty, purposes of 18th century herbs!
