WNC Herb Festival April 29- May 1, 2011
Posted by april_may
This year marks the 22nd Annual Asheville Herb Festival, and there will be over 55 herb businesses available for you. If you are an amateur herbalist or you hold a wealth of knowledge yourself, the Herb Festival is a great place to join other herbalists for purchasing, sharing, and exploring. According to the website, "Western North Carolina is a southeastern mecca for high-quality, often organically grown herbs, vegetables, and other produce. Conservation easements help farmers preserve existing farms and establish new ones, and many farms are dedicated to organic agriculture practices such as producing heirloom vegetables and range-fed livestock. Among the area’s many growers of herbs and other traditional plants, the Asheville Herb Festival has become an annual opportunity for old and new friends to show off their latest plants and products and share their knowledge."
