The Thyme of the Season
Making Green Country greener, one festival at a time.
Everyone loves the idea of having fresh veggies and fruits hand-picked from the backyard garden, but not everyone knows how to make it happen. Lucky for Tulsa, several annual gardening events are planting the seeds of a can-do attitude with plenty of events offering what you need to know and grow. The SpringFest Garden Market & Festival will be at the Tulsa Garden Center, 2435 S. Peoria Ave., April 12-13 with vendors selling herb plants and more (www.tulsagardencenter.com) while Herb Day in Brookside sets up sale booths at Tulsa’s 41st Street and Peoria Avenue on April 13 (www.brooksidetheplacetobe.com). Sand Springs’s Herbal Affair & Festival, April 20, gets bigger every year (www.herbalaffairandfestival.com), while the Jenks Herb & Plant Festival, April 27, continues to attract busy bees with all sorts of merchandise (www.jenksgardenclub.com).
