The Shaker Herb and Seed Industry 1882 – 2012
Co-sponsored by The Herb Society of America’s NorthEast Seacoast Unit & Strawbery Banke Museum
Stoodley’s Tavern, Strawbery Banke Museum, 17 Hancock St, Portsmouth, NH
Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Join us on Tuesday, September 25th, to hear to hear Betsey-Ann Golon, herbalist for Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, lecture on the history of the Shaker herb and seed business from the early 1800’s to the present. The Shaker community has been a vital part of our New England and American Horticultural history which continues to influence modern gardeners and the horticultural industry. The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, called Chosen Land, was the smallest of the Shaker Communities. Members of this family created the first seed packet and the song that most defines Shaker Life to the world “Tis a gift to be Simple”.
The program takes place at 7 pm at Stoodley’s Tavern at Strawbery Banke Museum (17 Hancock Street, opposite the Museum parking lot.) Pre-registration is required. Registration is $8 ($5 for Strawbery Banke Museum members). To register, contact Rie Sluder at 603-642-7034 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the last program in the 2012 horticultural lecture series co-sponsored by the Herb Society of America’s NorthEast Seacoast Unit and Strawbery Banke Museum.
