For a small fee, children can make their own potpourri pouch of secret herbal ingredients, learn about the legendary connection between Basil and Basilisks, and create their own basil seed starter pot shaped like a basilisk. Children will explore herbal references in children's literature such as the plants mentioned in Peter Rabbit and Harry Potter books. There will also be guided tours of the Herb Garden, the Herb Festival Marketplace, the A-Z of Herbs Information Booth, ongoing music, and delicious and healthy food.
