Garden fair was a great success
Another successful Spring Thyme Herb & Plant Faire was held May 12 at Fairbanks Park, sponsored by the Wabash Valley Herb Society. This project allows the herb society to annually fund several scholarships for area students, donations to other non-profit organizations in the surrounding counties and maintain the herb gardens in Deming Park.
The weather was perfect for a day in the park shopping for herbs and all things related to gardening. We had another record number of vendors with some coming from as far away as Cincinnati, Ohio. Our repeat vendors always welcome old and new customers and renew friendships with former customers.
We thank the community for supporting our efforts to expand the knowledge of herbs and gardening in the Wabash Valley.
A special thanks to First Financial Bank, WTHI, WTWO and the Tribune-Star for their support in advertising the Herb Faire.
See you again next year.
