Horn Farm Happenings – May 10, 2024

Celebrate with Horn Farm Center!

As part of our 20th anniversary this year, the Horn Farm Center is offering a free community gathering and potluck on Saturday, June 22nd.

Let’s celebrate the start of the summer season together! Join us at the Horn Farm Center for our “throwback” Summer Solstice Celebration, complete with musical entertainment, storytelling, family-friendly activities, free farm tours, and fresh-baked snacks from our historic Squirrel Tail Oven.

Stay tuned for updates as additional offerings make their way to this special community gathering – part of Explore York’s Annual Maker’s Spirit Event. We hope you can join the fun!

Thank You for Growing with Us!

Even with drizzle and chill last weekend, the Horn Farm Center’s annual Plant Sale was the place to be! Thank you to all who came out and purchased plants with us!

We enjoyed the warm company of both new and familiar faces in our greenhouse–all folks ready to dig into spring gardening. By purchasing plants from the Horn Farm Center, you supported not just our farm partners, but educational programs and ecological restoration across our community landscape. Thank you for buying local and uplifting our regenerative mission!

Don’t forget: leftover plants are available for self-serve pickup now through Saturday, May 11th. Simply stop in our greenhouse any time during the day and see what’s left. CASH PREFERRED, though we’re accepting checks and PayPal as well.

We’re grateful to our community vendors for braving the weather and bringing so much variety to this year’s Plant Sale!:

Thank you, as well, to our annual sponsors who helped make this Plant Sale possible!
Wishing everyone all the best for a nourishing and fruitful growing season!

You Make a Difference

To all of our supporters for Give Local York, THANK YOU! 

In just 24-hours, 192 donors, 7 matching sponsors, and Horn Farm Center’s Board of Directors raised $40,863.12 to help Perennialize Horn Farm for future generations.

We will always need a space to reconnect with the land, ourselves, and each other. Your donations serve as a financial investment in our mission and future. Just as importantly, it also recognizes our interdependence.

Regenerative land stewardship and ecological learning take a whole community, and we’re grateful to know that our community–like perennial roots–stems far and wide. If you want to see our mission in action, consider joining us for an upcoming class or event. Or, if you didn’t have a chance to support us during Give Local York, you can donate anytime online.

Thank you for valuing our work and ensuring that the Horn Farm Center can serve our community for generations to come. 

We hope to see you soon at the Horn Farm Center!

A special thanks to our 2024 matching sponsors who support our work and mission throughout the year!

Move, Connect, & Embody

Humans navigate the world differently than our animal kingdom kin. We sit often – at our desks, in our cars, in our homes – and our time outdoors can be limited. Cultivating personal wellness practices can help us connect with ourselves, one another, and natural world.

Horn Farm Center’s new Wellness Workshops are designed for holistic wellbeing. As gardeners, land stewards, and outdoor enthusiasts, bringing more attention to our movement and mind can provide lifelong benefit.

Practical Movement Classes: Aimed at developing a new “movement lens” and building physical resilience by moving, breathing, and observing, this series explores natural movement, breathwork, specific body part exercises, dynamic movements and restorative stretches.

Sunset Yoga: Held once a month at the Horn Farm Center, these classes feature different yoga styles with Firefly Hollow Wellness Center.

Breathe the Biome – Guided Mediation:  Disconnect from the daily stress of life and tune inward during this facilitator-led Guided Meditation class in a natural setting on the Horn Farm! An outdoor meditation practice is sometimes referred to as the Japanese practice of “shin-yin” or “forest bathing” while others may simply just deem it “reconnecting to nature.”

Join us at the Horn Farm Center for our new Wellness Workshops!
