Örtagården (the Herb Garden) in Old Skänninge

Skänninge, Mjölby   -  Part of: S:ta Ingrid's Gille, Skänninge's Local History/Folklore Society

Next to the museums in Old Skänninge there is a herb garden taken care of by the Local History Society (S:ta Ingrids Gille).

It was laid out in 1998 and is a popular haven where you can sit down and relax or stroll around and read the names on the signs.

In the herb garden there are special sections with plants and herbs that they have found traces of in the archeological material during recent excavations in Skänninge. Therefore we know that these herbs existed here in Skänninge during the Medieval times.
