Herbs in Colonial Times: Locktender’s Gardening Series
April 3 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
How did early settlers make use of garden herbs for their everyday needs? Join the Erie Canal Museum and Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Doreen Todorov for this talk explaining how herbs were used and prepared in earlier times.
This virtual program will kick-off the Museum’s effort to revitalize its Locktender’s Garden area and encourage people along the Canal to take up gardening in order to create a more beautiful and sustainable Canal Corridor. This effort, done in cooperation with the Onondaga County Master Gardener Program, will include a number of virtual speaking events as well as in person workshops in the Locktender’s Garden throughout the year. Thanks to the generous support of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and the William G. Pomeroy Foundation, all programs in the Locktender’s Gardening Series will be free to the public as part of our Erie Eats: Erie Canal Foodways Project.
This program is led by Doreen Todorov, a member of the 2011 Master Gardener training class in Onondaga County.
Master Gardeners are under the auspices of Cornell Cooperative Extension. Their role is to bring gardening information to the community. As a retired biology teacher, Doreen enjoys speaking to groups about topics that interest her. Her talks are researched and
