26th Annual Herb & Garden Fair

HerbGardenFairPoster2018Mushpa + Mensa is super excited about Spring and doing the 26th Annual Herb & Garden Fair.

The grounds of Poplar Grove will be filled with a wonderful  selection of locally grown plants of all types – herbs, perennials, annuals, hanging baskets, shrubs, native plants, vegetable starts and houseplants, plus garden art & accessories, herbal & all-natural products, artisan crafts & local foods.

Meet your farmer, your planter, your herbalist, your master gardener and artisan-maker by previewing the 2018 Vendor List Herb and Garden.

There is a $5.00 admission fee; kids 12 & under are free. Included in your admission price is live music by artist and musician, Mark Herbert from Broccoli Brother Circus and singer/songwriter Ann Meadows in the Gazebo; Kid’s Activities for the little ones, and free classes & nature trail walks (come see what is in bloom!) for young and young-at-heart throughout the two-day event.

Learn from your neighbors and some of the community’s best local historians, herbalists, and basket-makers! Our State magazine will be on site to distribute their special April Heirloom issue. 

We will be raffling off a fabulous grill from Lowe’s at Porter’s Neck.  There will be hamburgers, hotdogs, wraps, smoothies, and baked goods available for purchase, including Poor Piggy’s, Southern Concessions, Lil Johnnie’s Crab Shack, That’s a Wrap and Quesadillas,  and Kona Ice.

For the kids, The Stables at Poplar Grove will be open for self-guided tours (closed toes shoes required) throughout the day for $5.00 a person (young and old) as well as animal Meet & Greets on the back lawn. 

Self-guided house tours will be offered at a discounted rate of $7.00, though you are welcome to sit on our porches and visit our Gift Shop and Slavery Exhibit in the basement of the Manor House for free. The blacksmith shop will also be fired up, so be sure to follow the billowing smoke & peek inside.

Several participating vendors at this year’s Fair will also be kicking off our Farmers’ Market Opening Day on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 from 8AM-1PM, so this will not be the only time to introduce yourself.

Special guests, Pender County Master Gardeners and Pender County Tourism, will be on site with Information Booths.
