Merryspring has one indoor classroom space, a gazebo and we will have additional tent spaces to have classes under. It is open to the public and located right off Route One, so stop by to walk the grounds, enjoy the gardens and trails, and see where this year’s event will be.
For this years lunchtime barter fair, we ask you bring a blanket to share your wares, while at your lunchtime picnic spot. We will have a few spots for people to sell their herbal products as well and those spots can be purchased and reserved when you buy your ticket. More details when tickets go on sale.
If you want to volunteer, reply to this email to let us know!
There is no camping onsite but local camping can be found at Camden Hills State Park nearby. We encourage you to post on the event’s facebook wall to see if a fellow herbalist in the area may have camping and/or bedspace available to you.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to hearing from you.
