Canterbury Herb, Garden Day

On June 9, herbal educators and seasoned growers from all walks of life will come together to share their unique knowledge and build upon a tapestry of age old wisdom about trees and seeds, herbs and plants, and the power of nature to heal. The 9th annual Herb & Garden Day, presented by New Hampshire Herbal Network, will take place among the historic buildings and stunning landscape of Canterbury Shaker Village, featuring 12 workshops on topics such as growing seeds for health, herb allies for fertility and pregnancy, tree medicine, medicinal mushrooms, and more. Children and families can enjoy a hands-on workshop making seed bombs, planting herbs in pots and other activities. Herb & Garden Day is open to the public. General admission (all access) is $35. Market-only admission is $5 at the door and offers access to the Herbal Market and Plant Sale. There are still vendor spaces available for the Herbal Market and Plant Sale, and Sponsorship packages for all levels of support.

Concord Military donations

American Legion Auxiliary Unit 21 is handing out poppies and accepting donations for the Auxiliary Poppy Fund that goes toward the rehabilitation of veterans honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces.

ConcordStamp Out Hunger

Granite United Way is promoting the 26th annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger one-day food drive on Saturday. In recent years, across the nation, 80 million pounds of non-perishable food was donated. Donating is easy. On Saturday, leave your non-perishable food items out before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time. A good rule of thumb is to have the bags of food set out by 9 a.m. The top requested non-perishable items are cereal, pasta, spaghetti sauce, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals (such as soup, pasta, and chili), 100 percent juice, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, canned protein (such as tuna and chicken), beans, oatmeal and whole grains, and canola or olive oil. For more information, call them directly at 225-0004.
