On Saturday, June 17, 2017, herbal educators and seasoned growers from all walks of life will come together to share their unique knowledge and build upon a tapestry of age old wisdom about herbs and natural medicine, native plants, organic gardening, permaculture, traditional homesteading practices, fermentation, brewing, and the power of nature to heal.
If you are a curious seeker, intrepid plant lover, herbal entrepreneur, earth lover, or natural health advocate, this event is for you.
Held at the McLane Audubon Center in Concord, the 8th Annual Herb & Garden Day will take you on a trip around the sun, with workshops from each of the four seasons, featuring topics such as spring cleaning for the body, fall root harvest for medicine and food, wholistic approaches to seasonal depression, planting for the four seasons and more. Between workshops, attendees can browse the Herbal Market and Vendor Fair, featuring more than 30 vendors with medicinal and culinary plants and herbs, local, organic food, herbal remedies, natural soap and body care, artisan crafts and jewelry, books, gardening, alternative health info, and more. Attendees are encouraged to join one of four plant identification walks, enter raffles and dine from local food vendors.
Back by popular demand is the Harvest to Market pre-order plant sale, where you can pre-order plants, herbs, berries, vegetable starts and more from local farmers to be picked up at Herb & Garden Day. This option allows vendors to know what to plant, and ensures deliver-ability of desired plants. However, there will be plants available to purchase from vendors on the day of the event as well. Pre-orders can be placed by visiting the Harvest to Market website.
Herb & Garden Day is open to the public. Registration is $35, but early bird registration will be available until May 17 for $25. Click here to register. (If you only want to shop and do not plan to attend any workshops, you can just come that day and pay $5 at the door for market-only admittance.)
