Get in Touch with the Fertile Earth

First Solar residence in PA

Sonnewald Farm will host the 90-minute 20th anniversary Made in America Tours event for all ages at 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on June 13, 14 and 15, and 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on June 16. There will be sales, samples, demonstrations, door prizes and something for everyone.

This casual stroll around farmland that has never had chemicals on it will include the fascinating history that prompted the Lefever family to choose to live very simply decades before the American downsizing movement. Participants can take off their shoes and get grounded while seeing unusual fruit-bearing plants and Pennsylvania's first solar residence.

They will also hear the exciting plans for resuming production on the farm and renovating an old fire hall to create the Stoverstown Community Center and Stoverstown Whole Life Center. For more than 70 years, Sonnewald Natural Foods has been a community pioneer in all aspects of living sustainably.

Location: 1516 Lefever Lane; Spring Grove, PA. For more information, call 717-225-3825, email or visit
