Homeschool Friday: Historic Gardens

Open to all homeschool students

Homeschool students will learn about 19th century gardens and planting techniques in this hands-on program.  Students will work with a Master Gardener to use proper techniques such as planting seeds, watering them, and fertilizing plants.  In addition, students will learn about heritage plants, including some recently brought to Historic Columbia!  They will also learn how herbs in the 19th century were used as medicine, seasoning, and in other ways such as mosquito repellent.
