Harvest Feast Program

On Saturday November 3rd, 2012, on behalf of the Acadia Community Farm, Alyssa, Rachel and Fiija organized and ran a Harvest Feast program at the Farmers' Market. The event was a huge success, with people from the farm community, the Acadia community and the Wolfville community all attending. A multi-course meal was served including soup, salad, and a bun were the appetizers, vegetable pasta and corn-on-the-cob were the main course, and there was apple crisp, pie and cookies for dessert. Heather Kelday performed throughout the event (a big thanks again goes out to Heather for helping!). There were games for the kids, crafts such as corn husk dolls and gourd painting, in addition to a booth where participants were able to plant a small herb garden. There were also two booths set up around preserving foods and the Acadia farm. Two draws were taken, for a commissioned painting by Rachel Morrison and a nice basket of fruit, winery tour tickets, and chocolate. The event could not have happened if it weren't for the many volunteers that came out and helped - Thanks again!! - and the donations from local businesses. Noggin's donated quite a lot (ALL the decorations, pumpkins, gourds, etc.). We had a great time and the organizing team learned a 
lot from the experience.
