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

Meets in the Visitor Center


Plants had many uses in 19th-century life beyond food and medicine. Join us to learn about the many plants used in the manufacturing of a wide variety of textiles, and how 19th-century people utilized these textiles in day to day life.

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.
