One of my dearest friends and mentor Lauren Pignatello of Swallowtail Farm will be hosting Portland's first herb festival Herban June 18th-19th. Her new space, Milk & Honey, is home to the winter farmer's market and host of various events throughout the year.
I will be presenting a demo and talk on using herbs in the kitchen as well as offering our products with my wife Camille and out Three Lily Farm booth.
Here's a bit more about the event. The event, Herban, is here to celebrate herbs, weeds and flowers and all things green! Take a class, a workshop, a talk, an herb walk in Portland and out on Peaks Island. There's so much growing at this time of year!
Enjoy the Sunday artisan food and craft market and try special Maine foods. Gather your children and your neighbors children and bring them to plant seeds and seedlings , to learn about some simple uses of common plants, drink some fairy flower tea, build a fairy house and make some herbal crafts. Bring your potions and homemade goods for the swap. Find homemade crafts for gardeners and herbalists. Enjoy farm fresh foods and a special summer solstice dinner on Sunday night. All are welcome.
