Mother & daughter garden party overnight

The Mother & Daughter Garden Party Overnight will be hosted at the newly remodeled historic Stanford House from Friday, September 9 at 6:30 p.m. to Saturday, September 10 at 4 p.m. Participants will construct sustainable-method container gardens to take home, and then relax around a campfire with a cup of cocoa. In the morning, the party will continue on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad en route to the Howe Meadow Farmers? Market to shop for a picnic lunch and to meet local farmers. After a short hike to Hale Farm & Village, the group will picnic in the historic Goldsmith Garden and tour the Great Lakes Brewery Pint-Sized Garden. The party will then make a return trip to the Stanford House on the train.
