Friends Garden Update
Many thanks to Jackie Bonomo, Josh Lambert, Gary Fosmire, Kevin Gombotz and Jesssica Arends for helping at last Saturday’s Friends Meeting House Community Garden workday. Together, we finished mulching the lower section, including the unrolling of the ginormous switchgrass bales.

Gardens at the Discovery Space of Central PA
There was a little blurb on Wednesday in the Centre Daily Times about the new learning gardens built at the children’s museum in downtown State College.
