Today, although we don't see it, farming continues to touch our lives every single day.
Discover the importance of fresh from dirt to dinner at Cleveland Metroparks �Farm & Garden Day� event on Saturday, June 1 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Garfield Park Nature Center in Garfield Park Reservation in Garfield Heights.
�Farm & Garden Day� is a free event featuring the journey of getting fresh food from dirt to the dinner table. Enjoy a day �down-on-the-farm� with vendors and exhibitors, live farm animals, farm equipment, photo opportunities, and haywagon shuttles.
Local vendors will have products available from farmers and other items that can be used in a garden, including a heirloom plant sale and more. Plus, a local farmer's market will be set-up.
Free, tasting stations and children's hands-on crafts and activities will be going on all day, as well. And, kids can enjoy jumping in a huge mound of straw and throwing fistfuls in the air!
Visitors can also enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides for $2/person, too.
And, refreshments will be available for purchase.
Garfield Park Nature Center is located off the Broadway Avenue entrance of Garfield Park Reservation in Garfield Heights - north of the I-480/Broadway Avenue exit.
