I've been thinking about starting a garden. So when I heard about a spring herb festival happening at Erin's Meadow Herb Farm, I wanted to seize the opportunity to check it out. Turns out that this place was only 10-15 minutes away even though it's located in Clinton, TN. It required driving up the steep ridge and then sliding down almost recklessly, but nonetheless, a pleasant drive. I like visiting shops during busy days because when there's a festival, I can count on there to be a lot of other people. Since I find it awkward to browse a nearly empty store and receive undivided attention from the store owner, when I usually don't have much intention to spend money, these events are the solution to my dilemma. At this spring herb festival, there was a cooking demonstration, a few booths and a lot of people.
Funny story: at work, one of my projects is on our workplace sustainability employee and community engagement team. So last fall there was a craft fair at work, so we had the idea to organize a display of sustainable crafts. Someone wanted to display their fairy garden and none of us had heard of it before.
"Does the crafter believe a real fairy lives in it?"
Hahahhahha I mean, that was a real question. So later we learned what a fairy garden was. They're essentially small gardens with miniature furniture to make it look fit for a fairy to live in:
