To help Garden Thyme speakers and leaders plan accordingly for their program and, in some cases, communicate with interested members ahead of time, pre-registration is required. Registration opens approximately one month in advance for each program.
The early 19th-century is a rich chapter in the story of New England apples. Hundreds of varieties originated in historic orchards. This program will explore the role played by apples at the table and on the farm landscape in the past, and will look at the revival of interest today. Heirloom apple varieties will be available for tasting!
Please make sure to arrive a few minutes before the program starts in order to check in at the Visitor Center and walk to the program location.
Garden Thyme programs are held on a select Saturday each month and are FREE for members of Old Sturbridge Village. Led by Village horticultural and agricultural staff, these programs and workshops are held at various sites and deal with a variety of plant-related themes and topics.
