Do you know what herb repels ants, treats sunburn and was used to line coffins? Join horticulturalist Gordon Kenneson at Windsor Historical Society to find out! Kenneson will present “Garden Herbs: Their Medicinal and Culinary Uses” rain or shine at 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 22, at the Society’s historic herb garden.

Participants will learn about colonial herbs, their uses, and the properties they were once believed to possess. Which prehistoric herb was used to clean pewter? What herb grown for centuries is known as the “Queen Mother of Poisons”? Learn about colonial herbs and their uses, and about the 1930’s gardener who influenced all modern herb garden design. Kenneson will also share ideal growing conditions for herbs and other tips for those starting their own herb gardens. Rain or shine – dress for the weather – questions welcomed!

Advanced registration is required. Participation is limited to 10 people to ensure a safe, socially-distanced setting. Facemasks are required, guests will be spaced six feet apart. Please register on-line at www.windsorhistoricalsociety.org or call 860-688-3813 by Wednesday, August 19. COST: $6 adults, $5 seniors, $4 WHS members.
