[Photo Story] A Look Through Penn State Student Farm Club’s Harvest Festival
The Penn State Student Farm Club hosted its eighth annual Fall Festival Thursday night.
Folks got the chance to enjoy free food, listen to live tunes, get crafty, and soak up the last bits of summer before fall swoops in.
Several local caterers attended the festival to showcase their dishes. Taproot Kitchen dished out soups and gazpacho, Paul’s Provisions served zucchini salad made with fresh produce grown on the farm, and Penn State Housing and Food Services prepared several dishes.
Representatives from the Student Farm Club had a few words to share with the crowd before introducing Penn State President Neeli Bendapudi.
Bendapudi shared her excitement to attend the festival and rolled into a passionate “We Are” chant.
Local band Tyne and the Fastlyne rocked the farm with sweet folk music, providing the perfect soundtrack to the evening.
Harvest Festival attendees peeled apples, created beautiful flower bouquets, and crafted sun prints.
Out of all the activities, succulent planting stole the show. Folks were lined up to choose a container and pick out the perfect succulent to plant inside.
Besides the food, music, and crafts, the farm provided a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Students, families, and community members enjoyed the beautiful weather and took a moment to appreciate the Student Farm Club’s harvest.
