Tour high tunnels and meet the farmers who use them to grow food year round throughout the city; see cooking demonstrations; learn how to keep bees in your backyard and be a master gardener; watch 4-H kids demonstrate their archery skills.

Best of all, grow your connection from Philadelphia to PSU while you mix and mingle and sample free food and soft beverages, listen to live music, purchase harder beverages, participate in a scavenger hunt, and have some fun in the photo booth. Stay tuned for more details.
