Nancy Wetzel, landscape gardener at Historic New England, examines the historic importance of herbs, community herbalists, and herb gardens through the lens of Sarah Orne Jewett’s classic work The Country of the Pointed Firs. She discusses Mrs. Todd, the village herbalist in Jewett’s fictional Dunnet Landing, her herb garden, kitchen, and herbal remedies. After the lecture, explore the gardens and see, touch, and smell some of the herbs described by Jewett.
