Shaker Herb Garden talk at Heritage Lane
A Shaker Herb Garden program with Cathie Gifford will be presented July 30 at 10:30 a.m. at the Shaker Heritage Society grounds, 25 Meeting House Road, off Heritage Lane, Colonie, by the Albany International Airport.
Cost is $10 per person.
The Watervliet Shakers had an extensive industry in producing herbal medicines, teas, vegetable and flower seeds and other products and sold these items throughout the United States and internationally. Join Cooperative Extension master gardener and SHS volunteer Cathie Gifford to learn more about the Shaker herb and seed industry, followed by a walk in our heritage herb garden, where you can see and smell more than 100 varieties of plants historically grown and used by the Shakers. Pre-registration is required by July 27. (This event was rescheduled from its original date.)
