Springtime at Landis Valley

The warmer weather is working wonders around our site! Beautiful clusters of blossoms in shades of pink, white and purple are making their appearance on the trees.

Poke your head in the hoophouse where our seed house volunteers are busy preparing for the Herb Faire and the wonderful smell of basil and other herbs will greet you.

If you visit on a Thursday and walk down to the Log Farm, you might get to watch volunteers, Floyd and John, bundling rye straw and attaching it to the lowered roof of the hay barrack. Thatching is no easy job!
