The spring semester Garden Studio class will host its annual Strawberry Festival and Plant Sale on Friday, May 4. 

The event will take place from 2 to 5:30 p.m. at the Elon Community Garden. All students, faculty and community members are welcome to attend. Complimentary food, drinks, live music and activities will be offered at the festival. The event will also feature fresh strawberries and strawberry ice cream from local farms. Elon Hillel, Alpha Phi Omega, and several other organizations will also provide assistance and entertainment for the event.

The heirloom plant sale portion of the festival will include several unique varieties of basils, peppers, tomatoes and other plants not often found at a traditional garden supply store. All proceeds from the sale will be reinvested into the garden. Cash, checks, and Venmo will be accepted.

As always, the event will emphasize sustainability. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own cups and utensils to enjoy the light refreshments. Come to the festival next Friday to enjoy a beautiful afternoon at the garden!
