The Botanical Bonanza event will feature special treats, handcrafted cocktails, small-batch spirits, food and live music from noon until 6 p.m.

“We also have lovely non-alcoholic choices and Mississippi gifts available too,” said owner Rhonda Phillips.

Rushing will talk about botanicals and gardening starting at 2 p.m.

“This month we’re all about the gardening, the flowers and botanicals. I’m just super excited about having Felder come down,” she said.
