If you are a curious seeker, intrepid plant lover, herbal entrepreneur, earth lover, or natural health advocate, this event is for you.

Held at the McLane Audubon Center in Concord, the 7th Annual Herb and Garden Day will feature 12 workshops on topics such as mushrooms, invasives, GERD, growing and using peaceful plants, flower essences for pain, community herbalism, fermentation and more. Between workshops, attendees can browse the Herbal Market and Vendor Fair, featuring over 30 vendors. Attendees are encouraged to join one of four plant identification walks, take a break in the reiki tent and dine on food from local vendors.

"NH Herb and Garden Day is an excellent way to connect with herbalists, plant growers, alternative healers, and farmers who care about the health and wellness of our community," said Sara Woods Kender, acting president of NH Herbal Network, "and including vendors in the event helps to support our local economy."
