Advance registration required. $20; $15 members Friends of John Jay Homestead.

Herb Garden Day

  • September 21, 201910:00 am–2:00 pm

The N.Y. Unit of the Herb Society of America is revamping its traditional Herb Fair for 2019. Instead of having the traditional Herb Fair in September, this year’s special event(s) are a series of Herb Garden days, coinciding with Saturday Farm Markets at John Jay Homestead. Upcoming dates for these special herb days are Saturdays on June 15, July 20, August 17 and September 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

The N.Y. Unit’s herbal theme for July 20 is lemon herbs; for August 17, basil; and for September 21, rosemary (since the Unit usually gives rosemary samples at the Fair). In addition, Herbs of the Month selected by the national Herb Society of America, will be featured—dandelion for June; lemon verbena in July; galangal for August; and chicory in September. All the specified herbs will be used for tastings, baked goods and family activities. For more information, email herbsocietyny@gmail.com.
