Lee Somerville will be the next presenter for the Sunday at the Village series at Crossroads on July 22. Somerville is the award-winning author of Vintage Wisconsin Gardens.
At 2 pm, Somerville will guide visitors through the Heritage Garden while explaining and demonstrating late nineteenth-century uses for the flowers, herbs and vegetables. Visitors will also have the opportunity to make herb posies to take home. Books will be available for sale and Historical Society members will sell cherry pie to benefit the Village.

On July 24, birds and wildflowers will be the topic, and participants will learn to identify different species around Crossroads.
On July 25, the program is “Life in a 1900s Farmhouse,” and participants will explore a log cabin and wear period clothing.
