Taber Coffee Hour to feature lecture on harvesting edible herbs

The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society has announced the topic of Coffee Hour. Julianna Csoka-Cooper will present “Harvesting Edible Herbs.” The talk will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow in the Community Room of the Taber Museum, 858 W. Fourth St. The talk is free and open to the public.

Csoka-Cooper is well-known for her gardening skills. She has lectured widely, presented classes on many forms of plant materials, and has appeared in regular segments on Channel 8. She is a master gardener and is a long-standing member of Lewisburg Garden Club. In addition, her own inspirational and beautifully-landscaped grounds have appeared on many of the local house and garden tours.

The lecture is part of a series of lectures held throughout 2013 focusing on eating and drinking. Future activities will include a chocolate truffle tasting on Oct. 20, led by Bernie and Bonnie Katz of Le Chocolat. This lecture, free and open to the public (advance registration is requested for the truffle tasting) also will be held in the Community Room of the museum.

The lecture series combines the LCHS Coffee Hours (second Thursday of March through June and September through December) at 10 a.m. and its Society Programs (third Sunday of May through October) at 2 p.m. The lecture series is supported in part by a grant from the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts Inc.

Parking may be found to the rear of the building and on the street. For more information, call at 326-3326 or visit
