The week of Crabtree’s Spring Plant Sale & Festival is here. This year promises a superb line up of gardening, crafts, holistic health and food vendors. Saturday and Sunday offers a host of free workshops and children’s activities.

Come join us for a festive weekend filled with music, activities and the area’s largest selection of locally grown sustainable veggies, herbs, edible flowers, and fruit starts. Don’t forget to bring your wellies and rain coat. April showers famously bring May flowers. During this three day event, we may have some puddles for you to joyfully splash in.

More information and a complete plant list.
