Harvest Fest Music

Luckily for the garden (but not so much for us gardeners!), it poured down rain last weekend. Normally this is something we look forward to, but Saturday was our annual spring harvest festival, and incidentally the biggest one we've had yet.

Fortunately, we were able to move everything into a building for the evening, and, although it would have been nice to be outside, we enjoyed a huge potluck of food mostly made from garden-grown ingredients. We had a great turnout as well, including students and outside community members, many of whom were first-time visitors.

For me, the highlight of the evening was the incredible lineup of talented musicians who came to play for us. I was really impressed not only by the quality of their music, but also the creativeness and messages in much of their music. It really set the tone for a busy finals week, and reminded me how fortunate we are to have the garden, and the beautiful and amazing people who make it what it is.

Enjoy the music!
