Times: Meets at 9:45 am in the Visitor Center

Meets in the Visitor Center


Native American healers employed a broad selection of plants, from ferns to perennials to shrubs and trees, and they shared their knowledge with non-Native New Englanders. Come stroll the Herb Garden collection to view these native plants, and learn more about their history of use and their culture in today’s home gardens.

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. Participants gather at the Visitor Center and are led to the appropriate setting.
