Incredible Edible Herbs from the Dumbarton House Garden

Herbs and flowers have long been used for medicine, cooking and comfort. On Sunday, November 3rd, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm., in Dumbarton House's Belle Vue Ballroom, explore and learn about herbs used in the Federal period and grown in Dumbarton House's period herb garden.

Warm up from the autumn chill, taste the bounty of the season and join the American ladies for an introduction to herbs! Participants will make their own herb butter and bouquet garni. After a snack of bread, herb butter, and butternut squash soup seasoned with bouquet garni, participants will learn about the beneficial and healing properties of lavender as they make their own lavender sachets to take home.
