'Herbs and Potions' will take center stage on Thursday, June 9, at the next installment of the Chadds Ford Historical Society's 'Tavern Talks.'

This month’s topic is “Herbs and Potions,” a program that will explore the many uses of herbs, such as in food, poisons, remedies, gardens and even cocktails. In fact, some of the herbs used to cure illness in the Colonial period serve a similar role in modern medicine.

During “Herbs and Potions,” guests will have the opportunity to “brew” their own potion, sip on “herby” cocktails by The Mix Specialists, discover herbal remedies from Poseidon Ponds & Gardens, taste some edible flowers, unearth the hidden meanings of plants and more – an ideal way to get in the mood for summer.

Tavern Talks is aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older and focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. The program takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, a 1714 tavern, located at 630 Baltimore Pike.

Admission is $15 for non-members and $10 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person, or online as space is limited. For more information on the CFHS or to purchase tickets, call 610-388-7376, email us at info@chaddsfordhistory.org, or visit www.chaddsfordhistory.org.

Other upcoming programs include LiberTEA! EqualiTEA! on July 14, Creating the Perfect (Colonial) Selfie on Sept. 15, Very Superstitious: Fears, False Notions and Fables on Oct. 13, and All Things Apple on Nov. 10.
