Tickets are still available. This is going to be a great weekend for Central PA gardeners, and here’s five reasons why:

Originally published on the WPSU blog and broadcasted on WPSU-FM:

A new gardening concept is sprouting in Central Pennsylvania. Woody Wilson, a graduate of Penn State, took an idea he entered in an agriculture competition and made it his business. Wilson’s Home Farms gives State College area residents another way to bring local vegetables to their kitchen tables. WPSU intern Jessica Paholsky went along with Wilson to find out more.

Penn State Meat Sale

Penn State Meat Sale

While riding the bus to Innovation Park one morning, I saw a huge line of people standing outside a non-descript building. In my four years at Penn State, I never once paid any attention to this building, despite the fact that every football season I have walked past it on my way into Beaver Stadium. Outside there was a sign advertising a meat sale. Curious, I went online once I reached my destination and found what might be considered Penn State’s best kept secret. Almost every Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters, the Meat Laboratory holds a retail sale full of fresh cut, locally raised meat that is open to the public.
