The banks of the Nile provided the Ancient Egyptians with fertile soils and fresh water to farm wheat, fruits, and herbs that sustained their civilization for millennia. In celebration of their natural abundance, the ancient Egyptians would build elaborate and beautiful gardens that provided a place for family, leisure, and meditation.
We invite you to tour an authentic reproduction of an 18th Dynasty Peace Garden at Rosicrucian Park on Sunday, July 10, at 1:30 pm. We will explore some of the buildings and their uses, learn about the edible and medicinal plants, and meet our beloved fish.
Admission is free with paid entry to the museum..
Participation in this workshop will count towards the Junior Archaeologist Program graduation.
