Meet “Green Witch” Robin Rose Bennett in the Garden

September 18, 2016, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Come learn about the nutritive and medicinal qualities of herbs, weeds and plants first-hand in an experiential plant walk from 2-3:30 p.m. in Grasmere Park and the herb garden. There you'll identify, smell, touch, and taste beneficial plants with Robin Rose Bennett, the spellbinding herbalist and author of The Gift of Healing Herbs: Plant Medicines and Home Remedies for a Vibrantly Health Life and WiseWomanHealingWays.com.

Visitors can also catch the exhibit, From Farm to Suburb: The Birth of College Hill, which explores the evolution of a section of Maplewood from a dairy farm to a popular neighborhood of 300 houses. Out in the carriage house the Country Store will be selling historic-themed treasures: early American children’s games, books and toys, facsimile documents, quill pens and ink, historic cook books, cookie molds, tin lanterns, reproduction decorative ceramics, vintage photos, hiking sticks and more.
