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

Meets in the Visitor Center


Just like today, 19th-century New Englanders faced many challenges in gardening. From pests to soil fertility, to disease – New Englanders had to find many solutions to keep the garden growing. This talk will compare the issues and solutions common to the garden in both the 19th and 21st centuries.

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.
