Stop in to our high tunnel where we’ve grown winter crops for local food banks and shelters in recent year and discover our most recent project: Growing Plants Hydroponically! There will also be an opportunity to participate in a discussion with the Assistant State Soil Scientist at our Soil Health Pit.
Bring the kids along to run in our open spaces, interact with their County history and check out some seriously cool wild life during our Scales and Tales presentation from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m., presented by the Maryland Park Service as a part of their environmental education program. Hot Dogs and Hamburgers and other refreshments will be available for purchase while little ones and big ones alike get up close to some interesting birds of prey and reptiles and learn about species native to Maryland. We are so excited to be able to present these great experiences that encourage the community to discuss the environmental issues we face and those that our local wild life deal with in the form of loss of habitat and pollution.
Members of Historic Goshen Farm are so thrilled to be able to meet people in the community and show off our progress in the preservation of the history and grounds of this special, special place.
