Annual Herb Sale
Volunteers provide herbs from local nurseries for interested shoppers to peruse and purchase. Some Tate House enthusiasts include perennials from their own carefully tended gardens. The Annual Herb Sale takes place every May in this peaceful Stroudwater setting. Profits from the sale benefit the museum programs.
Visitors to Tate House Museum enjoy the Colonial Garden behind the house throughout the summer with garden tours available by special arrangement. The garden includes herbs that Mary Tate would likely have had available for her use in the family's large kitchen, where she would have used them to prepare meals, to tend to the family's medicinal needs and to dry for later use for aromatic additions to the household atmosphere.
