With Spring around the corner, this enlightening hands-on workshop focusing on 18th century house gardens, herbal healing, and historical receipts (recipes) is right on time. Plants, flowers and herbs grown in Morven’s gardens and the tools used to create healing herbal remedies will be featured.  Medicines of the enslaved and the ways women used herbs to care for their families will all be covered. Historical interpreter Virginia Kopacki, dressed in 18th century costume, provides attendees with take-home receipts, herbs, and spices to make their own ointments and cures. Ticket includes admission to the Museum for the day. Space is limited.
