Herbalist will give talk Oct. 25 in New Paltz
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.
