Harvest Festival Day One: Middle School

What a gloriously blustery fall day. With rain coming in sideways, the middle school came out to celebrate that very sacred time of year- the harvest time! With piping hot Orca mint tea, stew, and various other hearty harvest spirited foods- the mood was celebratory and communal. We gathered, ate, and shared a good time making lavender sachets, scarecrows, pickling vegetables, and even waffles from scratch (w/ wheat berries ground up by students?!?!!). Our expanded 3 day harvest festival schedule this year allows students more time w/ less crowds- a perfect balance. Local organic foods and food systems were never explored so deliciously.
