Garden of Distinction Award!
Penn Live article.
Our gardens offer a respite for anyone seeking a green space. Open from dawn to dusk daily, we are pleased when guests simply stroll the gardens for their enjoyment or take a moment to sit and relax in the gazebo. Located in downtown Mechanicsburg, the gardens are a hidden treasure. This pretty planting features edible geraniums that produce sweet little blossoms in the summer that add a delicate touch to salads or yield a bold flavor when the leaves are snipped fine and added to butters, pound cake or shortbread cookies.
We utilize the gardens for classes when the weather is nice, for outdoor music when the community holds their Mugs & Music weekend, and for the Fairy Festival of course! There is also a Fairy themed Geocache tucked in the garden to be discovered by those on a mission. Special thanks to our Volunteer Gardeners that help throughout the growing season to keep the gardens maintained.
