Herb Day on My Mind

It’s still a little over two weeks away, but Herb Day is coming!The Herb of the Year is DILL! (I’m not really sure why that’s so exciting, but apparently it is.)

The 15th Annual Herb Day will be held at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center at 21st and Ridge in Wichita on Saturday May 1st from 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.   Admission is free.

A few of the events that day:

  • Plant vendors from around the region will have herbs and other plants for sale.
  • Seminars on growing and cooking with herbs
  • Master Gardener Plant Sale
  • Herbal Brunch available in 4-H Hall by the Kitchen

Of course, the Kansas Grown! Farmer’s Market will be in the parking lot. (But don’t wait until Herb Day to come for a visit!)
