Visit the Parsonage garden and the Asa Knight store to see how families may have procured seed in the 19th century. From selecting the best crop to drying and cleaning, go through the steps of saving seed for annuals, perennials, and biennials.

Garden Thyme programs are held on the third Saturday of 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.
