Spring is in the wind and it’s time to go out and enjoy the garden! Revel in the atmosphere by attending a local herb festival! Because our online Herb Companion calendar is currently down, I’m going to list a bunch of upcoming herbal events in this blog; if you know of more, please post a comment to share!

Most of these events will offer a wide variety of herbal products, plants, seeds and food. Many feature workshops, demonstrations and lectures—some free and some for a few dollars. Be aware that not all vendors will be able to take credit or debit cards. For more information about a festival and its registration procedures, please follow the listed links.
