In the 1850s most Americans were farmers. They relied heavily on kitchen gardens to feed their families. These plots contained herbs and vegetables used for food, medicine, and dying cloth. Yarrow was used to treat colds and oregano to season meals. This garden plot is created in the style of German four-square gardens popular during the time the Potawatomi Mission was in operation.
