The Food and Garden Festival at Fairchild is around the corner on April 24 and 25. This year they’ve invited local bloggers to come to the festival and blog about the experience. I was invited!

The Festival is full of events focusing on local and fresh food. They have lectures, demos, and a plant sale.

Admission: Free to Fairchild members and children 5 and under. Non-members: $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 65 and up, and $10 for children ages 6 – 17.
