22nd Annual Asheville Herb Festival Coming April 29 - May 1, 2011
The WNC Chapter of the NC Herb Association represents the incredibly wide variety of herbalists and herb businesses in North Carolina: herb growers and vendors, natural gardening and landscaping specialists, and makers of herbal ointments, balms, soaps, teas, medicines, and other products. We hope you’ll join us and more than 25,000 other herb lovers when we celebrate our 22nd annual Asheville Herb Festival April 29th April 30th, and May 1st 2011, at the WNC Farmers Market.
Whether you’re looking for herbal medicine, holistic treatment, herbal soaps and shampoos, gourmet cooking herbs, cookbooks, or organic gardening information, you’ll find the products and experts you need. The annual festival has become an important annual gathering for herb enthusiasts and professionals from throughout the southeast. “Many visitors return each year to visit with friends, shop for their favorite plants and products, and have a good time surrounded by herbs,” says festival founder Rick Morgan.
Each year, herb lovers from across the Southeast take advantage of the Festival to enjoy some of the best herbs, plants, products, literature, and herb talk in the southeast. Often visitors are excited to learn that many popular herbs, having developed around the Mediterranean, are drought-tolerant. Master Gardeners, experts from the Buncombe Count Extension Service, will be on hand during the festival to answer gardening questions.
