Fall Gardening Workshop at the Food Festival!

The Yard Farmer will be at the Monocacy Farm Project’s 3rd Annual Food Festival on Saturday, September 15, 2018. In addition to hosting an info table all day, we will be giving a workshop at 12:00 noon about Fall Gardening Techniques. Come and learn how to put your garden to bed for the winter, how to plant garlic, and how to extend the growing season with cold frames.

The 3rd Annual Monocacy Farm Food Festival is a fundraiser for The Monocacy Farm Project in Bethlehem, PA. All proceeds from the event will go directly to benefit The Monocacy Farm Project. 
The farm project in part provides organically grown vegetables to 10 shelters, soup kitchens, and food pantries in the Lehigh Valley.

We hope you will join us for an exciting day full of hands-on activities, face painting, demonstrations, local food and artisans, music, farm tours, great raffles and more!!! 

The first 100 individuals/families will receive a free bag with goodies inside! :)
