All participants will leave with a solid knowledge of the harvesting and production of white teas, and their proper brewing and storage methods. This is a virtual class and participants will pick up the samples from the library ahead of the event.

VIRTUAL National Park Services: Longfellow House – Washington’s Headquarters
Wednesday, March 8, 12pm
What does a home reveal about its occupants, and about our shared history? The Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House bears witness to the history of slavery in New England and the early free Black community of Cambridge, and George Washington’s development as a leader. In the 19th century, it became the home of famed poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and a hub of literary and artistic life. More recently, the house reveals a rich history of the historic preservation movement. Learn more about this unique public resource, reopening for the season in May 2023. Led by Longfellow House Public Programs Manager Emily Levine.
