Reap a Rich Local Harvest at Goodell Gardens by Mary Birdsong

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

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
