Deborah Trickett is the owner of the Captured Garden (http://thecapturedgarden.com/). First, she will demonstrate some unique and beautiful container gardens with a power point lecture. Next, she will create 2 container gardens as we observe her design choices and technique. Deborah designs these to be beautiful, and anything but typical. She showcases uncommon plants and creates combinations that are anything but cookie cutter. At the end of the program, we will have a chance to win her two designs.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Gardening for the Five Senses – Lecture by Kelly Orzel

Want to know the difference between a charming garden and a breathtaking garden? Simple. An extraordinary garden engages all of your senses, not just sight. The smallest of things can transport us back to another place and time: the scent of lilac in the evening, the unmistakable taste of basil in a summer salad, the wooly comfort of lamb’s ears. Each one elicits a memory while creating a new one. In this talk Kelly teaches you how to create a beautiful and stimulating garden in your backyard that will tickle all five senses – sound, sight, smell, taste and touch – sustainably!

Herbal Weddings: Old Traditions, Modern Uses – Lecture by Betsy Williams

An herbal wedding is the essence of romance! The perfumed air, the delightful colors and the ancient symbolism of the plants blend to create a truly magical day. The program includes the stories and traditions of wedding herbs and the language of flowers, cultural directions for growing the herbs, garden design suggestions and how to use herbs and herbal flowers creatively in wedding flowers, food and drink.

Garden Herbs: Their Cultivation, Cookery, Cures and Caveats – Lecture by Dr. Judith Sumner

Plants offered the first effective cures for disease. The history of herbal medicine is defined by lore and science—in equal measures. The European herbal tradition is reflected in the medicinal plants carried by early settlers to the New World; many of these species escaped dooryard gardens and naturalized in our local flora. Our local flora now includes many plants with legitimate or presumed curative properties. Historic lore and the Doctrine of Signatures document herbs in fanciful ways that reflect human dependence on these essential plants. Many of these same medicinal herbs were used in cookery and food preservation, revealing the ethnobotanical wisdom of herbal antibiotic properties. Join us for this intriguing overview of medicinal and culinary plants—from ancient traditions to gourmet cookery, military history, and modern medicine.Celebrating Herbs: A Symposium Presented by The New England Unit of The Herb Society of America The Herb Society of America, New England Unit is a 501(c) (3) educational organization.
