Group meets at the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center (map)
Saturday, May 19, 2012, 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Reservations: Required

In colonial America, herbs were valued for their many uses as flavorings, medicines, dyestuffs, etc. Focusing on the herbs documented by Thomas Jefferson in his garden book and correspondence, Lily Fox-Bruguiere will give an illustrated lecture, followed by a tour of the useful herbs growing in the gardens at Monticello. Participants will also make and bring home a calendula salve for healing minor cuts, scrapes, and bug bites.
