About the Event
Stone Soup Books' Plant Grateful returns again on Fri May 5 from 9 to 12 ! PLUS keep celebrating plants by taking our plant inspired trail to SVAC for their annual plant sale. Yes- it's transformation downtown Waynesboro becomes Plantboro!! Gardeners or want-to-be Gardeners, bring & pick up plants and seeds to swap and ask questions! Local farmers are setting up for an early market sale of goods, medicinal herbs, honey, produce, crafts & some sweet treats! Community plant/seed swap + the following farmers/artisans:
- Fera Silvae - a small forest farm leaning into the question of how to live with, along side, and in service to perennial ecosystems. We grow mushrooms, fruit and nut trees, and a variety of medicinal herbs.
- Maia & Mk's Gaia Garden for friends and neighbors. Select seasonal produce from plants tended with song & spirit. Also some Salves, Elderberry syrup & Granola to keep you rolling in the garden!
- Bread of Life Bakery - Specializes in making Artisan breads & pastries with time honored methods, modern techniques and organic flours. Eric's offerings this year include: Some sourdough loaves, Soda bread, Scones, Muffins, Variety of Croissants, Cookies, & Biscotti!
- Mary Speiker's LOCAL Honey - If you've been lucky enough to get some of Mary Speiker's honey at Waynesboro Farmer's Market, you've had some of the BEST local honey offered in our area! Mary will be bringing Pints & Quarts of her raw, unfiltered Wildflower honey made possible by the bees & flora of Sherando!
- JMD Farm - Plants to beautify your garden and provide food for pollinators!
- Judith Dreyer, MS, BSN - Author of At the Garden's Gate will be on hand with her Artisan Jewelry and offering a short book talk at 10AM discussing the value generated by reducing lawn and creating more natural landscapes: conserves water, builds better soil, and needs less work. Many meadow plants are drought resistant, create habitat, and build diversity in our landscapes. Judith will be available for Q&A and signing her book.
- Gear up for the summer with our Plant Grateful event -- just feet away from the South River.
AND OF COURSE -- we'll be bringing the books out to the loading dock! Cart books $1 (paperback & childrens), and $2 (hardcover). We've stocked up on great Gardening, Farming and Nature books both used and new!
