We are happy to announce we'll have a native plant nursery joining us at the festival. Seven Bends Nursery of Winchester was founded this year by a pair of friends with a talent for growing plants and a passion for protecting the environment. You can find them at plant fairs and events like ours across the region.
Here's an introduction to Seven Bends, courtesy of their website:
At Seven Bends, we believe that the act of gardening reminds us of our dependence on a healthy planet. Gardening teaches us patience and care and connects us more deeply to the environment around us.
Seven Bends Nursery is committed to providing lovingly curated, high quality native plant material, herbs, and food starts that support the creation of ecologically friendly landscapes. Our plants are chosen for both their beauty and for their role is supporting the wildlife that keeps our minds peaceful and our landscapes healthy and beautiful.
We grow an assortment of native perennial flowers, trees, and shrubs important for wildlife within the Shenandoah Valley, Piedmont, and Appalachias. Our native plants are noteworthy for their beauty and resiliency, and support diverse, healthy landscapes. And because these plants are adapted to local regions, they are surprisingly easy to care for!
