Spring is a season of renewal and growth. You can take advantage of the warmer weather to enjoy outdoor activities at the Queens County Farm Museum, plant a garden, or simply walk in nature. It’s also a good time to do some spring cleaning and decluttering. Whatever you choose to do, make sure to take care of yourself and enjoy the beauty of the season.
This is the perfect time to start planning a visit to Queens County Farm Museum. The farm is celebrating over 325 years of continuous farming and showcasing New York’s rich agricultural history. Queens Farm has announced its schedule of fun and educational public events that will bring families together.
