About this event

Settlers Heritage Garden

FREE EVENT

“Round and round the garden…”

Michael Brown, Historic Gardener, will be bringing the Settlers Garden to life with a fascinating talk and garden tour demonstrating how ancient Settlers would have used their plants.

“Gardening has been essential for most people throughout history. Only the wealthy could afford gardens for pleasure alone.

Most gardens combined beauty with practical use such as food, flavourings, medicines, textiles and dyes. All could be grown or found growing wild locally.”

Find out which leaves were used as toilet paper, which roots were used as red dye, for fabric and ladies’ make-up, and which leaves replaced soap.

Michael Brown is the author of Death in the Garden – stories of Magic, Myths, Murder and Passion - and a soon-to-be-published book about medieval gardens, which will feature our Settlers garden.

There will be two sessions at 11.30 am and 1.30 pm.

Places are limited and so booking is essential for both sessions.
