Just recent: Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Vu Hortus has cancelled their Spring Blossom Festival. Below is my original posting. I decided to leave it up as an introduction to the VU Hortus, if you don’t already know it.
The dates are April 20-21 and will be from 10:00 to 17:00 (hours to be confirmed)
I’ll be there on Saturday, offering some fun events: How to Make an Herbal Tincture, and Smudge-Stick-Making, and have a few surprise-offerings of creative nature-play. Would love to have volunteers to help out at the booth, or with the events, so if you’d like to be involved in any aspect, just let me know.
For the kids, there will be an ongoing scavenger hunt, a kids-corner where they can display their nature-discoveries, draw pictures, do crafts, and, if there is a plentiful supply of nettle, we’ll make and sample yummy and healthful nettle pesto.
And there’s more: handmade preserves and farm-honey, and tropical plants, tulip-bulbs, ornamental plants and potted herbs for sale. I’m hoping the Pakistani couple with their amazing chai and samosas will be there – last year their food was so yummy, they completely sold out by the end of day! And, of course, we all look forward to some free, live music!!!
Please take a moment to read and sign the petition to help keep the Vu Hortus!
Here are some photos from last year. My two little daughters and I finished off our weekend with crazy dancing to the awesome salsa band… not a bad way to spend some time!
