Garden Herbs: Their Cultivation, Cookery, Cures, and Caveats.
Judith Sumner, a specialist in ethnobotany, flowering plants, plant adaptations, and garden history, will present an intriguing overview of medicinal and culinary plants—from ancient traditions to gourmet cookery, military history, and modern medicine. Sought after as a speaker, Sumner has been guest on the “Martha Stewart Living” TV show, the PBS program “Cultivating Life,” and various other PBS and educational programs.
The talk will be held at the Lexington Depot, followed by a tour of the Lexington Historical Society's Hancock-Clarke House herb gardens and refreshments in Hancock-Clarke Barn. At 4:30 PM, an optional private tour of the house will be offered (free/members; $10 nonmembers). Co-sponsored by Lexington Field & Garden Club and Lexington Historical Society.
Tickets available through the Lexington Historical Society; visit their website, www.lexingtonhistory.org/events (cut and paste or type in your browser) or call the Society office at 781-862-1703.
