Herb Garden Scavenger Hunt - for SUMMER CAMPS


Explore the Revere House garden and find out about the wide variety of plants colonial women grew to flavor food, improve memory, ward off pesky bugs, scent bath water, and treat ailments. During this program, participants work in pairs to identify plants by their textures, tastes, and smells. After discovering the unique uses of each herb, children taste an herbal tea and prepare bunches of plants to dry at home.
