The Godfrey House, Minneapolis’ oldest surviving wood frame house built in 1849, will host its 33rd Annual Dandelion Day Celebration, Sunday, May 15, 1-4 pm, in Chute Square in Minneapolis, 28 University Ave. SE.
Dandelion Day celebrates Harriet Godfrey’s introduction of dandelion seeds to the St. Anthony Falls area. Learn how to make dandelion necklaces, bracelets and crowns, just as Helen Godfrey did as a child. Have a dandelion painted on your cheek or chin, or get a temporary tattoo. Take home a complimentary recipe booklet which includes recipes for dandelion tea, salad, jelly, soup and wine, and learn other ways “teeth of the lion” were used throughout history. Take a guided tour of the charming yellow Ard Godfrey House with hostesses dressed in 1850s period costume. There will also be free Godfrey buttons for the kids. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Reservations required–search for Godfrey House Dandelion Days on eventbrite.com, or call Muriel, 612-781-8791.
