As luck would have it, the weather was perfect, beautiful beyond our hopes, as Saturday was the Harvest Fair in our community garden.
Beth Ellen organized a fun fair in our community garden for children of all ages., to picnic, listen to stories, meet Mother Earth and to play.
Mother Earth was decked out in her finest, as her job was to lead the children through the garden.
Luminaires lit the grounds and jack-o-lanterns scared off hobgoblins. However, ghosts were said to be running the pathways.
Farmer George gave all the kids a ride on a trailer pulled by his fancy tractor.
George also told the stories and the children, bedecked in costumes, paid rapt attention.
Mother Earth then led the children in a parade through the garden and at the end they received seeds of their own to plant.
Beth Ellen made sure the Festival was fun for all, especially the kids. The Harvest Festival was a wonderful way to share the beauty of our garden and celebrate the bounty of the earth.
