The public is invited to join the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging’s (CCAAA) Centers for Active Living on May 21, as they travel to Quiet Creek Herb Farm.
Participants will learn about organic gardening, herbal soup making and also hear a presentation about gambling prevention.
The fun day is free and includes an organic Quiet Creek luncheon, prepared and grown on the farm, plus an herbal soap of your choice compliments of the Clearfield-Jefferson Drug and Alcohol Commission.
Lunch, prepared with renewable energy sources (solar and wind) and food grown on-site, will include homemade lasagna, fresh salad greens with dressing, whole grain bread, herbal butter, herbal tea and chocolate no-bakes.
Quiet Creek Herb Farm is sponsoring free bus transportation from Clearfield (also stopping in DuBois) to Quiet Creek Herb Farm (Brookville). The bus will leave Wal-Mart, 100 Supercenter Dr., Clearfield, promptly at 8 a.m.
The buses will then pick-up at the DuBois Senior and Community Center at approximately 8:30 a.m.
After lunch, the buses will depart and should return to DuBois at approximately 1:30 p.m. and Clearfield at approximately 2 p.m. Reservations are required and will be accepted until the bus is full.
Quiet Creek Herb Farm & School of Country Living is a non-profit, charitable, educational organization dedicated to increase the public understanding of the importance of conserving natural resources, thinking ecologically and living healthfully and sustainably.
