Dandelion Day at the Godfrey House 5-17

On Sunday, May 17, the Ard Godfrey house, built in 1849 and located at the corner of University and Central avenues SE in Chute Square in Minneapolis, will host a Dandelion Day celebration from 1-4 p.m. 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 coffee, tea, salad and wine, and learn other ways "teeth of the lion" were used throughout history.

Tours will be conducted by hostesses dressed in 1850s period costume, and there will be free Godfrey buttons for the kids. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

Restored by The Woman's Club of Minneapolis, the Godfrey House has been open to the public since 1979. For more information, visit www.ardgodfreyhouse.org.
