April 5, 2022 - Herbal Folklore with Kim Lehman 

(At Zilker and on Zoom)

 

The stories and myths of flowers and herbs take us back to fairies, Greek warriors, and our own childhood plant lore passed down from generation to generation. How did mint and parsley come to be? Take a look at the plant world through stories, folklore, songs, and personal anecdotes with Kim Lehman, an educator, storyteller, musician, workshop presenter, and author. Currently on the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster, Kim has performed at hundreds of festivals, schools, libraries, and museums, and was a featured teller at the Texas Storytelling Festival. She is the author of the book “Beekeeper’s Lab.”  Kim is a past president of the Austin Herb Society
