Come join us 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 day portion of the symposium features noted garden speaker and writer, Kirk Brown, who will personify John Bartram: American Medical Herbalist. Other speakers include: Clem Hamilton, Herbals in History: Botany, Philosophy and Daily Life, Cynthia Druckenbrod, Historical Medicinal Gardens, Karen Kennedy, Designing an “Enabling” Herb Garden, and Beth Schreibman Gehring, Creating a Personal Herbal Retreat. Beth will guide attendees as they make an herbal spa product to take home.
The evening portion of the program will again feature Kirk Brown who this time will speak on Olmsted: Urban Parks and the Health of a Nation. Learn about the Olmsted firm’s connection to Cleveland’s MetroParks and Fine Arts Garden. Will Hollingsworth, owner of the Spotted Owl, will entice you to explore the Italian herbal liqueur, Amari: Italy's Gift to the World. A cocktail party will conclude the day’s activities and will give guests an opportunity to mingle with the symposium speakers and enjoy Will’s Amaro creation.
