The Herb Garden in 18th Century New England
June 21, 2009
Herbs provide interesting foliage and are also the basis for lotions and salves with healing properties. Learn about herbs and the ways in which they were gardened and used in the 1700s. Judy Hallberg works with the 17th and 18th century gardens of the Ipswich Historical Society and recently completed restoration of the society’s 17th century Housewife’s Herb Garden. This event is part of the weekend-long Cape Ann Garden Festival at the Sargent House Museum.
