Herb Festival - October 26th - 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. - Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Dear Folks,

I'm back after helping a relative with health issues (doing much better).

The annual Herb Festival at the BTA has now been moved from Spring to Fall - a better planting time for many herbs here in the desert southwest.

Now scheduled for the ending day of the Fall Plant Sale - you can pick up some plants and sample some of my herb-focused dips, and check out the music and other vendors.

Arboretum Herb Festival and Live Music
October 26

 "Herb is the word" during the final week of October's annual Fall Plant Sale fundraiser and Lynnea and Preston are special-ordering a variety of herbs to add to the dozens that they have grown themselves. Our annual Herb Festival has moved to the Fall and strategically scheduled for late October to take advantage of optimal herb planting time. Bring a picnic and join us Sunday for music and the chance to meet members of the Arizona Herb Association and browse items at their booth. Enjoy live music by The Levno Duo from Chandler (Celinda and John Levno, on flute and guitar) and sample savory tastings of herb-infused dips from Catherine 'The Herb Lady' Crowley, all in the environs of our Wing Memorial Herb Garden.

Here is a short list of some the herbs that we'll have for sale.

yerba mansa
rosemary (assorted)
lavender (Spanish)
lavender (English)
mexican terragon
bible hyssop
marjoram (pot)
garden rue
giant cat mint
little leaf cat mint

several different mints

 Make it a great month in the garden!
