Civic Association looks to increase yield for Community Garden

With hard work from the community, including students from Central Bucks East High School, the Civic Association transformed a 5,600 square-foot grassy field into a beautiful and productive vegetable garden enclosed by a deer fence.

The Village Renaissance Faire

The Faire’s authenticity, diversity, and more than 9,000 attendees annually make it hard to believe that the 17th Village Renaissance Faire is produced by and for the benefit of the Village Library of Wrightstown, but it IS true.
