Amblebrook at Gettysburg: A Community Committed to Nature

This April, Amblebrook showcased its commitment to environmental consciousness through a series of engaging and educational events. Embracing the beauty of nature and the responsibility of environmental stewardship, Amblebrook’s residents came together to learn, engage, and make a tangible impact.

A Bounty of Local Produce at the Farmer’s Market

Amblebrook’s month kicked off with the Harvest House Farmer’s Market, giving residents the chance to enjoy the freshest local produce. Taking place on the first Saturday of each month, the Farmer’s Market is more than just a place to pick up delicious fruits and veggies – it’s a great opportunity to meet up with friends, catch up with neighbors, and support sustainable, local agriculture.

The Flower Arranging Spring Fling was a delightful blend of creativity and sustainability, where participants crafted beautiful arrangements from locally‑sourced flowers. This event celebrated the vibrancy of spring and gave Amblebrook residents a chance to show off their inner artist while promoting the use of native plants that support local ecosystems.


Celebrating Earth Day with a Campus Clean‑Up

This Earth Day, residents rolled up their sleeves for the Campus Clean‑Up. This event helped beautify our community and instilled a sense of collective responsibility towards maintaining and respecting our local environment – it was a day of camaraderie and conscientiousness, leaving a lasting green impact on Amblebrook.

Hiking by Starlight

The Nature Club’s Twilight Hike was another highlight, inviting residents to experience Amblebrook’s natural beauty as dusk fell. Strolling through the community’s trails was not only a chance to stay active, but also an opportunity to strengthen the community’s connections to nature and each other.


Gardening in Suburbia

Capping off the month, the Suburban Gardeners presentation provided practical tips on creating and maintaining sustainable suburban gardens. Residents learned how to enhance their home’s green space in an eco‑friendly manner, emphasizing the use of native plants and organic gardening techniques that help nurture and support natural wildlife.

Long‑Term Commitments to Conservation

Beyond April’s slate of events, Amblebrook’s dedication to the environment is also evident in its ongoing long‑term initiatives. The establishment of a riparian buffer on the property plays a crucial role in protecting water quality, providing habitat for wildlife, and enhancing the natural landscape. In addition, Amblebrook’s home builders are committed to energy efficiency, and homes are designed with sustainability in mind, featuring energy‑efficient appliances and building materials that help reduce the community’s overall environmental footprint.


This April’s activities are just a few examples of how Amblebrook lives out its commitment to the planet every day. Whether through learning about native flora and fauna or participating in community events that put a spotlight on conservation, Amblebrook residents are active stewards of the environment, making a positive impact one step at a time.
