Fired Up for Fall

Bachman’s invites guests to get up close with equipment that keeps farms working through the busy growing and harvesting seasons and what keeps greenhouses thriving. Explore trucks and tractors and learn about their functions in the nursery business. Pumpkins are used for more than jack-o’-lanterns. Find out what activities families can do with the gourd at home. Meet Elmer the tree and enjoy music and roasted corn. Adults can take a mini seminar on creating great outdoor living spaces. (10 a.m.-1 p.m. Sat. Free. Bachman’s, 6010 Lyndale Av. S., Mpls. 612-861-7311. bachmans.com.)
