The Fall Edible Garden Festival at Fairchild Garden
Today my family I attended the first annual Fall Edible Garden festival at Fairchild Tropical Garden. The festival is a celebration of the fruits, vegetables and the herbs we grow in South Florida, plus Scarecrows Contest and wonderful Halloween decorations through out the garden.
The weather did not cooperate with the festival, it rained most of the day but that didn’t dampen our spirits, we all had a lot of fun.
There were gardening lectures, cooking demonstrations, gardening demonstrations, vegetable vendors and plenty of food; and all among the beauty of Fairchild garden.
The Scarecrow contest was hit with the kids, all scarecrows were ecologically friendly and created by members of the community. Proceeds from the contest entry fees will support the conservation of native fish in our local lakes.
Halloween decorations through out the garden all made from garden materials.
The ghosts were made from palm fronds.
I also attended a photography class early in the morning, taught by a world famous nature photographer from Fairchild. See some of the photos I took on my other blog My Viewfinder.
