Sugaring, Shearing, and Science

March 31, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Throughout history, farming and astronomy have gone hand in hand. Keeping track of the night sky was an important tool for farmers as they planted, maintained, and harvested their crop. Learn about the night sky, the connections between farming and the universe, and the hustle and bustle of Ella’s Hillside Farm over 150 years ago. Join us as we welcome back Zot Artz and a glow experience. Visitors can participate in a large scale mural utilizing black light and glow in the dark paint. Planetarium shows every half hour.

Price: nominal fees for food and activities.
