Cary, NC – Just a few pictures from Herbfest in case you couldn’t make it or just wanted to relive the glory.
2nd Annual Herbfest
This year’s Herbfest, presented by the Friends of Page Walker, was the second annual celebration of gardening, culinary plants and outdoor living.
There were crafts and food, garden tours and plein air painting for kids. I had a chance to chat with Kay Struffolino, Cary’s Hometown Spirit Award Winner, Ed Yerha and Brent Miller of the Friends, Peggy Von Scoyoc, CaryCitizen’s historian emeritus and our good friend Derek from the Meathouse. Derek was distributing grilled chicken the size of a lunch.
I saw people selling ceramics, our pals from Garden Supply, Paige Williams from Great Harvest Bread Company and lots of other interesting things.
This year’s Herbfest also featured street theater by Burning Coal Theatre Company and a cooking demonstration by chef Lucindy Willis.
If you missed Herbfest this year, put it on your radar for 2012.
