June 29, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Wind down your visit to the 2017 Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts by enjoying a summer afternoon decorating flower pots and eating farm-fresh snacks.

The Student Farm invites families and community members to their free “Art on the Acre” event from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 16, located on the farm's one-acre site near the intersection of Big Hollow and Fox Hollow roads.

The family-friendly event will feature flower-pot painting, student-led tours of the farm, and fresh, healthy snacks. Kid-friendly tours of the site will include educational opportunities to learn about different varieties of vegetables, how food is grown, and how food gets from the farm to the table.

Guests will have the opportunity to decorate flower pots to take home, or help paint pots that will be featured on-site at the farm. This event is free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle and sunscreen.

Directions to the farm can be found online. In case of inclement weather, updates regarding the event can be found on the Student Farm’s Facebook page.
