Culinary Herbs as Medicine: The Herbal Apothecary in Your Kitchen

Culinary herbs and spices have traveled the world on ancient trade routes and within cultural traditions lovingly passed down through the ages.

They enliven our favorite recipes and perfume our gardens in high summer. But did you know these familiar seasonings are also powerful plant medicines? Join herbalist and medicinal plant grower Lindsay Napolitano of Fields Without Fences to explore the healing pharmacopeia already growing in your garden and hidden in your spice cabinet! Delve into the art and science of kitchen herbalism as we learn new uses for familiar plants, and uncover the alchemical knowledge coded within time honored recipes.

Museum tours at 1:00 pm Garden Talk & Tour at 2:00

Light refreshments will be served
