Revel in a deeply satisfying cornucopia of fall pleasures on Sunday, Sept. 14, when Goodell Gardens and Homestead hosts its 9th Annual Homegrown Harvest Festival.
Snag some locally-grown produce and flowers from area farms (Teed, Vanco, Strawberry Lane, Tender Acres, Peace by Piece, Schultz, Diablo Pepper), and locally-produced food goods from the likes of Byler’s Relish House, Lil Bit-o-Honey, Conneutee Creamery, Hurry Hill Maple Farm, Happy Mug Coffee, Beelzebub’s Salsa, and Diablo Pepper Farm.
The musical groups Salmon Frank, Tiger Maple String Band, and Todd Crowley and Friends will provide aural spice to the event, and artists and crafters of all stripes will offer clothing and stitchery, woodwork, paintings, jewelry, and lots more eye candy. Quilts by the Loose Threads Quilters will be on display in Carrie’s Cabin.
The Wooden Nickel Buffalo Farm and Tasty Twist will be on hand to serve up lunch and snacks, The Real Magic Steve will perform a magic show, and Todd’s musical petting zoo will be available for some hands-on instrument fun. Other family-friendly fun will be provided by Boro Women’s Services.
School may be back in session, but the fun of fall is just underway – go get some, and see just how rich the local bounty can be. – Mary Birdsong
