9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The Isles Garden Support Network, helping community and school gardens grow since 1981, invites you to experience farming the old-fashioned way! On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, a team of horses from Howell Living History Farm will plow the community garden at 81 Chestnut Avenue (between Walnut Ave. and Greenwood Ave.) between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm.

The largest and oldest of more than 75 community and school gardens in Trenton, the Garden at Three Points has hosted the Howell Living History Farm plow teams for over 25 years. Operated by the Mercer County Park Commission, the Farm demonstrates farming techniques used in the U.S. at the turn of the 20th century and in many parts of the world today. Local students will participate in the hands-on event by helping direct the horses and learn about corn shelling, composting, and more.  Free.  609-341-4724
