Cary, NC- Last year, the Friends of Page-Walker created a new festival in downtown Cary – Herbfest.
My daughter Emma and I attended and she was thrilled to take home a seedling that grew into a large basil plant. The festival is returning on the weekend of May 7 and has expanded to include live performances and demonstrations along with the herbs and gifts for sale.
