Join us on a field trip/program to Tower Hill Botanic Garden on Saturday November 18th. We will be carpooling from Krashes Field ( DPW/Soccer Fields and snack shack on Rte 31) at 10am.
Tower Hill Librarian, Kathy Bell, will be giving a 45 minute lecture/demonstration on "Botanical Treasures from the Vault". You will see many wonderful and beautiful works stored in the Tower Hill Library archives and this program will introduce some of Tower Hill's finest examples stretching across five centuries. You will be introduced to a range of herbals, early dictionaries, and journals that share stories behind them. There are gorgeous prints, porcelain and array of rare books by noted authors and artists. Hear about the early history and people who formed the Worcester County Horticultural Society and many local resources will be highlighted.
After the lecture, we can tour the gardens, the Lemonia and the Orangerie. Then have a delicious lunch at Twigs Cafe. The menu features hearty sandwiches, fresh salads and hot soups. Twigs prepares foods with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients sourced from the garden and local farms.
