Participants work with Strawbery Banke’s Curator of Historic Landscapes, horticulturists and other museum experts to learn the techniques for growing, harvesting and preserving heirloom plants. During the week, the group will explore nearly four centuries of historic gardens and use their bounties to learn methods of historic cooking, creating traditional medicinals, producing textiles and investigating how the natural world influenced many aspects of life in the past.
