PCO FarmFest July 29 – 30

Pennsylvania Certified Organic is having their Organic FarmFest this coming weekend (July 29 – 30) at the Grange Fairgrounds in Centre Hall, PA.  This is an action-packed event with lots of good food, music, and information.  There are fun kid activities and a most meditative “Wool Village” where you can see folks carding, spinning, and knitting wool into wearables.
