Event Description

May 2, 2013 Updated May 2, 2013 at 8:20 AM EDT

Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College will kick off its annual NatureFest Friday, May 10 with a Haymow Concert in the Farmstead Barn at 8:30 p.m. A folk group, The Nearby Elsewhere, will play.

The Nearby Elsewhere is composed of Craig Mast, Kate Truscello and David Kempf, all from the Goshen/Elkhart area. The trio uses the fiddle, guitar, mandolin and banjo to preserve traditional tunes, give new folk-life to cover songs, and play some original material of their own. Merry Lea’s Farmstead Barn has beams, rafters and a few friendly bats to add to the atmosphere.

NatureFest is a family-friendly bash that showcases a wide variety of ways to get closer to the outdoors, from hiking to container gardening, from catching insects to tasting wild edibles. All festivities take place at Merry Lea’s Farmstead Site. This year’s theme, Nature Nurtures Us All, includes booths and activities that demonstrate our dependence on the Earth for our food, clothing and shelter.
