HARMONY — Gardeners and plant lovers of all stripes and styles are gearing up for the Harmony Museum’s annual Herb and Garden Fair where attendees can donate and trade potted plants.
The fair is set from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 9 at the historic 1805 Harmonist Barn. Attendance is free and parking will be available at the barn.
“In addition to the plant exchange, vendors will offer a wide selection of annuals, as well as garden tools, art and accessories,” according to a museum news release. “Members of Butler County Master Gardeners are available to provide gardening advice and tips.”
Those who donate plants will receive vouchers they can use to select plants from other participants. Donated and exchanged plants should be in pots.
“Farming, gardening, and wine making were important activities of the Harmony Society of German Lutheran Separatists who founded Harmony in 1804. When the Harmonists departed for the Indiana Territory in 1815, Mennonite farmers led the resettlement of the area,” the release said. “To this day, grapes still grow, and sheep still graze in the borough of Harmony.”
