Second Saturday Demo: Herb Gardening

May 14, 2022, 1 p.m.3 p.m.

Event Navigation

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.

For more information about the event, please call 580-873-2634. Fort Towson Historic Site is located north of US 70 near Fort Towson.
