  • Village gardens bloom with summer sights this Sunday

    The home of Krista Magaw and her daughter Anna Carlson is featured in this Sunday’s Summer Bloom and Bounty tour. The event, a fundraiser for the Antioch School, costs $10. Tickets may be purchased at Current Cuisine, Sam and Eddie’s Open Books, Greenleaf Gardens and Stutzman’s Garden Center.
