    The Kitchen Apothecary: Making Herbal Medicine the Shaker Way The Harvard Shakers grew and harvested herbs for sale all over the world and for use within the Shaker community. By 1835 the herb industry in Harvard was a major business with 197 herbs for sale - many for medicinal purposes. During this workshop you will learn about the many common and uncommon herbs the Shakers cultivated or harvested and how they were used. We'll also discuss drying and storing herbs, teas, vinegars and other herbal remedy techniques. Presented in partnership with the Herbal Community of Central Massachusetts. Space is limited.
