Adventures in Agriculture

Starting at 4 pm on Friday 2/10/12 and through the weekend, Palmer Park Mall will host its annual shop, play and learn event - Adventures in Agriculture. Penn State Master Gardeners, Northampton County Farm Bureau, 4-H of Northampton County and much more! Merchants will be on hand with local farm production for sale.

Learn about local food, 4-H Activities, ecology, antique toys and farm implements, animals. Fun and games for children are scattered throughout the mall. A mall-wide scavenger hunt is always popular.

Want to grow great tomatoes? The Master Gardener display includes “Tomato Time” covering tomato diseases and growing methods. The kids can learn “How seed Grow” and plant bean seeds. Gardening question? Ask a Master Gardener. Pick up free information fact sheets. A free raffle drawing for a Soil Test Kit will take place at the end of the show. Sign up any time. You don’t have to be present to win.

Get out of the cold. Come in and enjoy the displays and the great store sales that usually accompany Adventures in Agriculture.

Are you sure you don't work for the Chamber of Commerce? You do a splendid job of promoting local activities.

Thanks, Donna. Maybe there's a new career for me. NOT :-) I just enjoy all these local opportunities.
