In eighteenth-century 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 lead 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, burns, and bug bites.
