Harvest Fest is a time for us to meet together. We work to make a feast of shared soup, and wait together as the soup simmers to temperature. We wait for the soup because it is not an assured outcome. We aren’t selling soup. We aren’t selling rides or tickets or bouncy house times. We are enjoying together free crafts, caramel apples, community-made soup, and a bike rodeo with prizes!
We are asking of each other to gather. We have a consequence in each other’s lives: we share a place where our children build community and learn together. We are gathering to share in the sustenance of our cooperation. Yes, this year it looks that it will be cold. May that cool air lead us to be all the more thankful for our warmth and welcoming each other’s shining faces! Bring a bowl and a spoon to use for eating the soup - and bring a veggie to contribute!
Harvest Fest is happening on October 12th 2-5pm!
Bike Rodeo is still happening on October 12th 2-4pm!
Due to predicted weather, both will likely take place inside the school.
We are still looking for setup volunteers! Sign up here!
What should I bring?
a mess kit (bowl, spoon for eating the soup)
prepared vegetables to add to our soup (bring pre-cooked veggies or tender greens that cook quickly - make sure they are chopped small or pre-sliced for the soup!)
bikes and helmets for minor adjustments and reflective tape decoration
an attitude of hospitality
What if it’s raining or cold or snowing?
We are still holding this wonderful event rain or shine - we have a warm gymnasium and are prepared to have many activities inside if the weather is chilly.
What will be happening?
all free of charge:
Bouncy Houses for fun leaping and bounding!
Face painting for wonder and whimsy!
Live music (including student band Energy Park)
Caramel Apple stand
Cider pressing for fresh cider
Bird feeder making
Stone soup making
A chance to buy from student micro-economies (crafts, fermented foods, student-made bird houses, etc)
Hope to see you and your family on Saturday,
Head of School
