The Low Country Herb Society will be having a Spring Garden Festival at Inlet Culinary Garden, 5071 Hwy 17 Bypass South in Murrells Inlet on April 4 and 5, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There will be over 80 varieties of herbs, perennial and annual flowers, and many varieties of heirloom vegetables available.
There will be herbal food and tea samples, information on using herbs for culinary uses and information handouts on herb gardening.
Representatives from Low Country Herb Society will be on hand to assist the Inlet Culinary staff to answer questions and help with plant selection.
Inlet Culinary will have pottery and organic fertilizer, potting and seeding soil available to give plants the best possible start.
A portion of the proceeds from the two-day event goes towards supporting the Low Country Herb Society’s scholarship fund, which awards two $1,250 scholarships to a graduating senior going on to study horticultural or culinary arts.
