Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

WHAT: Talk by her­bal­ist WHEN: Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. WHERE: Stein­berg Read­ing Room of Elt­ing Memo­rial Li­brary, 93 Main St., New Paltz

DE­TAILS: Su­san Gin­gerich, the “Herb Lady of Laven­der Glen,” will present a talk. Draw­ing from the rich his­tory of herbal lore from Euro­pean, Na­tive Amer­i­can and Chi­nese cul­tures, she will poke fun at those who have lost their re­la­tion­ship with plants and have re­placed them with store-bought prepa­ra­tions and med­i­cal doc­tors. She spins tales and re­calls old be­liefs about plants as she wends her way from rose­mary to mullein, shar­ing what she’s been out gath­er­ing in her bas­ket. Ad­mis­sion is free, and the event is open to all.

CON­TACT: Call (845) 255-5030, ext. 2, or visit elt­inglibrary.org for more in­for­ma­tion.
