The fourteenth annual Pennsylvania Herb and Garden Festival will be held on April 13 and 14, 2012 at the York Expo Center, Memorial Hall, located at 334 Carlisle Avenue in York. Formerly the Pennsylvania Herb Festival, the event was expanded in 2011 to include more plants and products for gardeners while continuing to offer all things herbal that the festival has been known for over the past thirteen years. The festival continues to be dedicated to educating the public about growing and using herbs and will feature speakers, workshops and over 75 vendors of plants, herbal and garden crafts, and products for the gardener, cook and crafter.
The festival will include a full schedule of speakers who are knowledgeable in herbs and gardening. Lecture topics include gardening know-how, roses in the landscape, using herbs medicinally, native plants for birds and butterflies, beekeeping, and more. Neither advanced registration nor a fee is required for the lectures scheduled throughout the festival.
