NEW HANOVER COUNTY — The tradition continues.
For three decades, Poplar Grove has kicked off spring with its Herb and Garden Fair. The event takes place this weekend at 10200 U.S. Highway 17.
It is also Poplar Grove’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event supports the nonprofit, which is focused on education, conservation, and preservation of the 1859 farmland and plantation. It has various events a year and hosts tours to share its historical significance in the region.
The Herb and Garden Fair takes place Saturday, April 1, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, April 2, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
More than 150 vendors will be aligned on the 14-acre grounds, selling herbs, perennials, annuals, hanging baskets, shrubs, native plants, vegetable starts and houseplants. There is also garden art and accessories, herbal and all-natural products, artisan crafts and local foods.
Farmers and herbalists, master gardeners and artisan-makers can answer any questions regarding gardening needs for the 2023 season. There will be special guests with Pender County Master Gardeners.
Beverage and food trucks are parked on site.
It is $5 to be admitted each day, though kids 12 and under are free.
