Herbs for the Holidays: the Science of Stuffing and Beyond
Thursday 10 November 2016, 01:30pm - 03:00pm


Where: The Gardens at Elm Bank - Parkman Room

Join us and learn about the historical uses of herbs in food preservation and the modern day understanding of their benefits for healthy living. Dr. Mohsen Meydani of Tufts University and John Forti, Mass Hort Director of Horticulture and Education, will use herbs from our gardens to present the beneficial uses of herbs and a hands-on component allows you to pot up a fresh herb plant to take home for the holidays! 

This lecture is the latest offering from the collaboration between Massachusetts Horticultural Society and the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging to bring news of the most current scientific research and how-to horticultural skills in regards to nutritional benefits of plants.

Members: $12
