These local garden centers will provide a wide variety of greenery, including vegetables, wildflowers and herbs. Flowering potted plants, such as mums, tropical ferns and poinsettias, will also be available.

Gardeners don’t have to sport a green thumb to attend. Master Gardener volunteers will be on hand throughout the festival to answer any questions.

However, not all vendors are limited to selling plantlife. A few specialty vendors in last year’s festival included Alamance County Arts Council, where visitors could purchase crafts, jewelry and home furnishings. BJ’s Jewelry also set up a booth displaying an assortment of fashion jewelry and sterling silver. There is truly something for everyone at this festival.

Admission is $3 for those over the age of 12. All proceeds collected from the festival will go the Women’s Resource Center. For more information, visit The Herb Festival’s website.
