Autumn Local Herb Faire

sunday november 4th

10 am - 2 pm

Chico women’s Club



Free & Open to All

The Elderberry Apothecary’s mission is to connect local plants and local people. We brought you the Local Herb Faire in June, bringing together local herbalists to share with the community.

We’re back this fall, and just in time to give your immune system a healthy boost for cold and flu season. Join us for herbalists vending their wares, as well as food and tea, and workshops.

Workshops are free, open to the public, and suitable for families. There is no need to register. See you there!
