Goodell Celebrates National Public Gardens Day by Ryan Smith

Friday, May 12

Beautiful and bustling with all sorts of spring growth, Edinboro’s Goodell Gardens & Homestead would be a fine place to spend part of any Mother’s Day weekend.

Turns out National Public Gardens Day falls on the Friday before Mother’s Day every year, and Edinboro’s historic public gardens are among nearly 600 throughout the U.S. celebrating it – and, by extension, promoting good things like green living, sustainability, and conservation – by inviting everyone out to explore what’s there.

Goodell Gardens is providing free admission for all visitors on Friday, May 12 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with guided tours around the gardens at both 1 and 3 p.m. On top of that, Goodell officials said they’re planning other activities and will be offering discounts on new memberships purchased that day.
