(Carlisle, Pa.) – This Labor Day weekend, the Dickinson College Farm in Boiling Springs will serve as a Cumberland County destination for the South Mountain Outdoors (SMO) festival. On Saturday, Sept. 1, starting at 10:00 a.m., farm staff and apprentices will host a free one-hour guided tour of the 50-acre, USDA and Food Alliance Certified farm, including its vegetable production and animal pasture acreage and the farm’s sustainable energy technologies. The tour is open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged by Friday, Sept. 31st.
South Mountain Outdoors 2012 festival is a weekend-long celebration of the outdoors. SMO is a private/public partnership that serves to educate residents and tourists on South Mountain’s natural beauty through unique experiences and recreational opportunities in Adams, Cumberland, Franklin and York counties.
SMO provides a usable agenda called a Passport that highlights all festival events. Passports can be obtained at participating locations prior to the festival, during the festival or can be printed from the SMO 2012 website at any time. Participants are asked to log their visits by entering each site-specific code into their Passport. To be eligible for random prize drawings and a grand prize, participants should drop off their Passports at any participating location.
