Quiet Valley's Summer Garden Party


Visitors coming to the farm for the historic tour will experience guides portraying family members going about a typical day on a homestead in the 1800s. In addition to the tour, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., folks will have a chance to involve themselves in a variety of garden-related activities. Tour a typical Pennsylvania German kitchen garden, get help with garden basics, sample yummy things made with fresh herbs and vegetables and take home some recipes. Watch a cooking demo, enjoy herb breads made in the outdoor brick bake oven, and adults as well as children will have fun making garden-inspired crafts.

The Summer Garden Party is included in the admission to the historic farm tour. This event is sponsored in part by a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Project Stream grant.
