Our annual celebration of the "Good Earth". This event is always a tremendous show. Herb and other plant vendors…live and dried herbs, plants, spices, flowers, earth-related craft and art work (bird houses, plant holders, etc.), as well as fiber-related arts and crafts, environmental-related items and how-to books.
This year this event will be even better because we've added a day and included our third annual

This will feature amazing demonstrations as the chainsaw artists display their talents. Watch as life-like animals, characatures, plants, etc. appear from a "simple" log.
