Aug 29, 2014 07:55AM


Riverview Nursery and Garden Center will host their annual Fall Fest from noon to 4 p.m., October 11. The family-friendly event comprises local food vendors, fall-themed activities, an art show and music performed by local bands. Admission proceeds plus 10 percent of all sales during the event will benefit the Berks County Home Builders Association Restoring Hope Foundation. Each year since 2011, the Restoring Hope Foundation has chosen a deserving family for a free home makeover. This year’s recipient lives in Upper Bern Township.

“When you receive blessings, it’s important to be grateful, acknowledge your blessings and give back,” remarks Diane Salks, chair of Restoring Hope Foundation and owner of Riverview Nursery.

Family activities include crafting pumpkin planters and skeleton milk jugs, face painting, hay rides and a food-preserving workshop with Root & Branch: Designs for Living by Alexis Campbell. Regional farms will be on hand to discuss their community supported agriculture (CSA) share programs. Locally sourced, natural ingredients and healthy lunch options will be offered by local purveyors including Goods Eatz Café and Bakery, Gayatri Wellness, Mi Casa Su Casa and Skyline Drive Orchard. Musical performers include And You, Brutus?, Together We Sashay, Matt Bailey and area jazz/funk favorite Lazy Afternoon.

Cost: $5, ages 11 to adult; free for children 10 and under. Location: 3049 Pricetown Rd. (Rte. 12), Temple. For more information, call 610-929-5049 or email [email protected] or visit or
