It is so beautiful and green today!
We would like to thank Lake Forest's Edith Foster Farwell for her work in making the Chicago area a bit greener!
Edith began growing her garden after realizing the outrageous price of buying from others. From there, her herb garden became very well known. After using her herbs for medicinal and culinary purposes, she began writing and lecturing about the knowledge she had cultivated.
Later, she would be an inspiring figure for the creation of the Chicago Botanical Gardens and produce her own works on her herbs: Have Fun With Herbs, My Garden Gate is on the Latch, and The Fairy’s Garden.
