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.

As of right now, each program will require pre-registration so that we can maintain capacities and social distancing. Registration will open approximately one month in advance for each program and we will evaluate this requirement as 2022 proceeds.
