(Media release from Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home):

Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home is proud to announce that they will once again host the annual Herb & Plant Sale in-person at the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds! Eagerly anticipated by area gardeners, the Chieftains Herb and Plant Sale will be held this year on Saturday, April 15th and Sunday, April 16 th in the Village Building at the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds, rain or shine. Sale hours are 9am to 4pm on Saturday and 12pm to 3pm on Sunday.

Sale Chairperson Virginia Hunter has brought together a dedicated group of volunteers who plan to make the sale a big success this year. As expected, they have selected the finest plants suitable for growing in our area from several well-known regional nurseries. All plants are healthy and fresh—they’re delivered just before the sale.

The sale will feature a wonderful selection of herbs, native, and unique heirloom plants as well as several varieties of tomatoes. Plenty of annuals and perennials will be available, allowing customers a chance to refresh their sun or shade plants after this latest cold snap. Knowledgeable volunteers and Master Gardeners will be on hand to help you select the right herbs and plants for your garden.

Shoppers may also purchase beautiful containers at the sale or bring their own clean pots for our experienced crew of gardeners to design and plant on-site for an additional fee.

Credit and debit cards will be accepted in addition to checks and cash. All proceeds benefit Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home. The Herb & Plant Sale is sponsored by Friends of Chieftains Museum, Inc.

Be sure to mark your calendar for April 15th and 16th and come to the Chieftains Herb and Plant Sale in person again in ’23! For more information about the sale or the museum, visit or call (706) 291- 9494.
