We are happy to announce that Holly Shimizu will be the honored guest at this year’s Herb Festival. Since returning as Executive Director of the U.S. Botanic Garden in November 2000, Holly Shimizu has led the Washington D.C. Garden in many new and exciting directions. The Garden was accredited by the American Association of Museums in 2007 and has received numerous awards.

In addition to many prestigious positions in horticulture, she served as Curator of the National Herb Garden at the U.S. National Arboretum. Holly will be presenting at 1:00 pm both days. On Saturday she will be sharing how she started the National Herb Garden and on Sunday she will be discussing the “How to’s” of Growing herbs for Use and Beauty.
In addition to Holly’s presentation, there will be on-going speakers on garden and herb-related topics, guided tours of the Herb Garden, Herb Festival Market-place, the A-Z on Herbs information booth, and the SDBG Spring Plant Sale with a multitude of vendors.

Back by popular demand is Tomatomania!® with lectures on culture and care, and plenty of tomato seedlings.
