St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) begins to blossom around the Summer Solstice, which practically coincides with St. John’s Day. Join us in the garden to celebrate the longest day and to learn more about the legacy, folklore, and medicinal attributes of St. Johns’s wort.
During this tour, we’ll also meet other plants traditionally used to support joy and ease the mind and spirit, as well as herbs for repelling insects that might otherwise bug you.
We’ll gratefully welcome volunteers most Wednesdays and Thursdays between 11 and 4 from April through October! Please email to let us know when to expect you.
