Tour NH inns, take home an herb garden

     I'd  like to invite travel, garden, outdoor writers to the Annual Herb Tour in Mt Washington Valley, June 8-9, 2013.  Leave it to the Country Inns in the White Mountains to come up with the perfect spring follow-up to their annual Inn to Inn Holiday Cookie and Candy Tour.  Just in time for gardening season, Country Inns in the White Mountains guests can usher in spring with a weekend event celebrating the garden-to-table movement combined with a relaxing learning getaway and we have a limited number of spots for media to attend.

     On June 8-9, 2013 media are invited to tour 11 premier White Mountains inns for the 5th Annual Inn to Inn Spring HerbTour from 11am-4pm each day, as each inn presents an in-depth look at a popular culinary herb.  Tourgoers will take home herb trivia, historical facts, recipes and ideas for growing the herb seedlings they receive from each inn. It’s a take-home herb garden and a fun, educational getaway combined with relaxing and rejuvenating stays at award-winning inns. You'll have the chance to write about fabulous culinary experiences, gorgeous inns and/or the Mt Washington Valley of New Hampshire.

      Each inn will focus on one herb and offer delicious tastings featuring that assigned herb from their own kitchen garden. In the past, tour goers have grazed from inn to inn enjoying tastes of tomato basil soup, carrot-chervil dip, sage biscuits, tarragon egg salad, and rosemary chocolate cookies. This year’s tour will feature a whole new menu of wonderful herb-inspired tastings. Participants will go home with a folder of new recipes from dishes they tasted plus interesting herbal lore and pots of herbs or seeds to grow their own. It’s quite literally a take-home herb garden in one getaway!  

     Qualified media on assignment to write the event, the inns or the region will be treated to:

- a complimentary two-night stay at a participating inn.

- Herb-inspired breakfast each morning.

- tickets to the event

- Dinner one night

Transportation is on your own and not included.  A limited number of media spots are being held. Media may bring one adult guest as long as both share a room. 

     Please respond to Marti Mayne at with your interest AND your intentions for placing the story.
