Ist Annual Floyd Herb & Plant Festival

Join us as the Blue Ridge is in full bloom for Floyd Virginia’s first annual Plant & Herb Festival. Saturday April 18th, the grounds of Chantilly Farm will be filled with a wonderful selection of locally grown plants of all types - herbs, perennials, annuals, natuve plants, vegetable starts, house plants, plus garden art & accessories, herbal & all-natural products, artisan crafts & local foods.
More than a plant sale, the day will include hands on workshops, activities for the little ones, free classes, a forest garden demo and other fun activities for the whole family.
Our Special Guest, renowned folk lourist and naturalist, Doug Elliott will be leading a Wild Weeds and Woodslore Plant Walk at 10:00 AM and will be on site throughout the day to answer questions while spreading his love of the natural history that surrounds us.
There’s always something yummy to eat in Floyd. At the Herb & Plant Festival there will be foraged food samplings, farm to table meals, and baked goods brought to you by the artisan food trucks Copper Dog and Grateful Bread.
Come for the day, stay for the weekend. Floyd Herb & Plant Fest is proud to host Doug Elliot Friday evening April 17th, for a night of fireside stories, history and lore. A farm to table buffet style dinner will also be available; advance tickets are required. Other indepth intensives are being offered Sunday, including mushroom log inoculation with Michael Akers and Wild Food Foraging with Mel Kasting.
