One of the new features at the 30th annual Home and Garden Show is Centre Park, a collaborative site that will showcase the work of many local companies where consumers will be able to see products to scale.


EP Henry, a paving and block-manufacturing company, has gen­erously offered to donate all of the block and paver material they provide for use in Centre Park. Through the help of ma­sonry students at the Central PA Institute of Science and Technology, a local veter­ans’ organization will be receiving a new patio after the Home and Garden Show.


Centre Park would never have come together without the leadership of CJ Henry from Green Horizon Landscape and Tim Wenrich from Clearwater. Those two, along with Mark Eminhizer from Bricks and Stones Supply, Scott Burk from Scott’s Landscaping, Jeff Bolze from Pennwood Home & Hearth and Chris Shirley from Central PA Institute of Science and Technology.
