In addition to touring the garden, festival-goers can watch herb cooking demonstrations and visit booths selling a wide variety of herbs, crafts and garden products. Each vendor will offer items related to gardening, herbs, native plants, perennials, nature and cooking.
“We look forward to serving lunch at this year’s Herbfest,” said Bonke. “It’s going to be a great day for the community to come out and learn about herb gardening and cooking, in addition to enjoying our selection of locally-farmed cuisine.”
