Many of medicinal plants brought to the New World escaped dooryard gardens and naturalized in our local flora, which now includes many plants with legitimate or presumed curative properties. Many of these same medicinal herbs were used in cookery and food preservation, revealing the ethnobotanical wisdom of herbal antibiotic properties. This intriguing overview of medicinal and culinary plants—from ancient traditions to gourmet cookery, military history, and modern medicine—is cosponsored by the Lexington Field & Garden Club and the Lexington Historical Society.
Refreshments in Hancock Barn of The Hancock Clark House on Hancock Street after the lecture.
