Name: Garden Herbs: Their Cultivation, Cookery, Cures, and Caveats
Date: July 27, 2019
Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
The history of herbal medicine is defined by lore and science, in equal measures; yet plants were known to offer some of the first effective cures for disease. The European herbal tradition is reflected in the medicinal plants carried by early settlers to the New World. Many of these species escaped dooryard gardens to naturalize among plants the Native peoples were using. This workshop provides an overview of medicinal and culinary plants – from ancient traditions to gourmet cooking, military history, and modern medicine. Judith Sumner specializes in ethnobotany, flowering plants, plant adaptations and garden history. She studied at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and at the British Museum, and did extensive field work in the Pacific region. She has worked as the scientist-in-residence at the Star Island Natural History Conference, as a guest on “Martha Stewart Living” and the PBS program “Cultivating Life,” and on various other PBS and educational programs. She lectures widely at botanical gardens, universities, and various symposia.
