 WV Herb Association and MSU's Fall Celebration of Herbs
Saturday, October 10th

With summer over before it hardly started, it's time to start thinking of harvesting and using the herbs, fruits, and vegetables you've grown or purchased throughout the coming months. Plan on joining the WVHA and MSU's Celebration of National Herb Day, Saturday October 10th at historic Jackson's Mill for tips on using herbs and herbal products all winter long.

There will be demonstrations, weed walks, music, fun, a dessert contest and tea party, raffles, make-it and take-it workshops, and videos on value-adding, straw bale buildings, and United Plant Savers' "At Risk" Native Medicinal Plants. Herbal products, plants, and books will be available for purchase as well as free information on a wide array of gardening subjects.
