Come join the Western Reserve Herb Society on March 10, 2017 at the Botanical Garden, for the day--or part of the day-- learning, lunching, and looking ahead to the upcoming garden season by exploring the many delights and historic uses of herbs.
The daytime session of the symposium--from 9am to 4pm--will feature nationally noted garden writer, Kirk Brown, who will enlighten us through a personification of 16th century American Medical Herbalist, John Bartram. Other speakers include Clem Hamilton on Herbals in History: Botany, Philosophy and Daily Life; Karen Kennedy on designing An Enabling Herb Garden; and Beth Schreibman Gehring on Creating a Personal Herbal Retreat. Beth will guide attendees as they make an herbal spa product to take home.
The late day portion of the symposium --from 5pm to 8pm-- will again feature Kirk Brown, who will speak on Olmsted: Urban Parks and the Health of a Nation. Learn about Olmsted's connection to Cleveland's MetroParks and Fine Arts Garden. And Will Hollingsworth, owner of the Spotted Owl, will entice you to explore the Italian herbal liqueur "Amaro". A cocktail party will conclude the day's activities.
