Second Saturday Demo: Herb Gardening
May 14, 2022, 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
Fort Towson Historic Site will host the next program in its Second Saturday Demo series to teach about the practice of growing an herb garden on Saturday, May 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. This program will be led by master gardeners Jean Maninger and Billie Paskin.
Fort Towson had three main gardens from 1824 to 1854: the hospital garden, the officers’ garden, and the company garden. Growing herbs and fresh vegetables at the fort provided soldiers with important vitamins and minerals—something often missing from a frontier diet of salted meats, beans, and flour.
