On June 17, 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 N.H. Audubon’s McLane Center, the 8th annual Herb & Garden Day will celebrate the cycles of Mother Earth by providing workshops on harvesting through the seasons. Our local presenters will discuss using native plants for medicine; how to make a medicine wheel garden; planting and using garlic; root harvest preparations; flowers used in infused oils for skin care and much more.
Between workshops, attendees can browse the Herbal Market and Plant Sale, 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, take a break in the reiki tent, 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 deliverability 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 bit.ly/HarvestToMarket.
Herb & Garden Day is open to the public. Registration is $35, but register by May 17 and get the early-bird price of $25.

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.
