Sow Some Seeds
Saturday, May 20 – 10 AM @ Mabee Farm
As spring finally arrives, join us at the Mabee Farm Historic Site to help plant the gardens and fields. From apples to zucchini, the families that called the site home ate crops that they planted and harvested. Don’t forget to wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty!
