Centerport Garden Club Visits The Cloisters

In September of 2016 members of the Centerport Garden club Horticulture Study Group visited The Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park in New York. It is a part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and has, not only Art ,but also has replicas of medieval herbal gardens. With the guiding of an excellent docent the members learned a great deal about the history of medicinal plants which are still in gardens today.
