We begin our school year as the heat of the summer begins to wane and the warmth of the sun has ripened the harvest for us to reap.
We celebrate the abundance of food and prepare some for storage through the winter days ahead.
We prepare for a Harvest Festival in the autumn that becomes a ‘festival of doing’. There may be apple and marigold garland making, a fire pit with roasted corn, apple cider pressing, fiddle music and lots of singing and dancing. There is hearty vegetable soup and harvest bread for all.
We close the festival with songs around the fire and go off to home with our treasures we have made and gratefulness in our hearts.
All are welcome - Family, Friends and Neighbors!
