Calling all cooks and herbalists! Get thee to Cunningham’s 21st Taster’s Choice and Herbal Faire on April 5 and 6, 2014, between 10:00 am to 3:30 pm, at 2440 Lofberg Drive, Jacksonville, Florida.
DIRECTIONS: To get to Cunningham’s Herbal Faire, find your way to PARENTAL HOME ROAD (PHR). From Beach Boulevard, go down PHR to Emily. Turn left. Continue on Emily down a dip in the road. Come up the dip and bear right. You are still on Emily but when you hit the curve to the left, you are on Lofberg Drive. Look for 2440 Lofberg Drive on the right.
From the Bowden Road/University side of PARENTAL HOME ROAD (PHR), take a right on Bowden and continue on Bowden to PHR. Take a left at the light (can’t go right) and continue down PHR to Emily on the RIGHT. Yes, it’s very confusing as you will first see Emily on the left. Continue on Emily down the dip in the road. Come up the dip and bear right. You are still on Emily but when you hit the curve to the left, you are on Lofberg Drive. Look for 2440 Lofberg Drive on the right.
The event is a weekend of all things herbal, including lunch from appetizers to desserts, vendors with soap, seasonings, dips, bees and honey, pressed floral designs, herbal cards, yard art, hypertufa pots, antique roses, berry bushes, olive trees, scented geraniums, unusual herbs, coleus, succulents and much more. Come take a walk through the herb gardens, enjoy lunch and wander through the swamp to Pottsburg Creek. For additional information, call 904.725.3106 or email “locun at att.net” or visit Cunningham’s Herbs on Facebook.
Admission is free and open to the public. For insurance purposes, she asks that you please leave your animals home.
If for some reason, you can’t make it to the April 5-6 Festival, there’s another one, just in time for Mother’s Day, on May 10-11, but that is probably the last one until the end of the year.
