Grow Ohio Valley To Hold Its Annual Harvest Festival in Wheeling
Grow Ohio Valley once again is inviting its neighbors throughout the region to celebrate the fall and get a closer look at the organization’s operations with its fourth-annual Harvest Festival.
The public is invited to GrowOV’s Lincoln Meadow Farm at 779 Grandview St. in Wheeling from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free.
Visitors will enjoy local music, a pumpkin patch, local food and other family-friendly activities. The Meadow is home to two high tunnel greenhouses, a learning garden, a spring-fed pond, and a yurt classroom.
Food from local vendors will be available, including fresh pressed apple cider from GrowOV’s own Vineyard Hills Orchard and other local producers. Live music from local favorites and hidden gems will include The New Age Adenas, Ezra Hamilton, Adrian Niles & Matt Heusel, The Jim and Bailey Band, Jeff Sperl, Dave Widder-Varhegyi, and The Sunflower Brothers.
Partners featured at this event include the Fun-Raiser urban mobile playground, Oglebay Institute’s Shrader Center, Bike Wheeling, Clientele Art Studio, Winkin’ Sun Company, the Ohio County Solid Waste Authority, the Mother Jones Center for Resilient Community, and West Liberty University.
Parking will be available at the Grandview pool and several lots in East Wheeling with shuttle service.
Grow Ohio Valley is a nonprofit that grew out of an afterschool urban gardening program in its East Wheeling neighborhood. The organization now hosts more than 40 employees working to build a network of small farm and food businesses.
