Fair Trade items help Tyler at Twilight

Located across the street from Penn State Brandywine is Tyler Arboretum, a wonderful place to explore a variety of plants, hike trails, and learn some local history.  Each year, the Arboretum hosts Tyler at Twilight, a silent and live auction that raises funds to support Tyler’s mission and 650 acres of the outdoors.  In honor of their recent designation as a Fair Trade University campus, the faculty mentor for the Penn State Brandywine Fair Trade TrailBlazers donated on behalf of the TrailBlazers a basket filled with Fair Trade food and crafts for the silent auction.  Paired with organic fruits and vegetables from Greener Partners’ Hillside Farm Share, these items raised over $300 for Tyler Arboretum!
