CLEARFIELD – The public is invited to join the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging’s Centers for Active Living on June 19, as it travels to Quiet Creek Herb Farm.

Participants will learn about organic gardening, worm composting (Learn how to grow the best tomatoes.), and also hear a presentation about “Gambling away the Golden Years.”

The fun day is free and includes an organic Quiet Creek luncheon, prepared and grown on the farm, plus an herb or vegetable plant of your choice compliments of the Clearfield-Jefferson Drug and Alcohol Commission.

Lunch will include homemade lasagna, fresh salad greens, whole grain sprouted wheat bread, herb butter, herbal tea and choco-no-bakes.

The agency, in partnership with the Clearfield/Jefferson County Link to Aging and Disability Resources, is sponsoring free bus transportation from Clearfield to Quiet Creek Herb Farm, Brookville.
