Autumn Food Fest
A celebration of food grown locally and an opportunity to exchange ideas and preserves!
The 2012 Harvest Fair was held on Tuesday 23rd October in the Temperance Hall and celebrated the abundance of locally grown and produced food, in spite of the previous summer’s disastrous weather. The evening buzzed with excitement and enthusiasm and food swapping, seed saving, felt making and wild mushroom identifying were just some of the interesting demonstrations on offer during the evening.
If you wanted to learn how to make health drink, Kombucha, there was a stall with samples to taste and recipes to follow and a few lucky punters got to take home their own start-up cultures. The food swap stall was another popular spot where people exchanged jars of preserves, jellies, chutneys, pickles, dried herbs and other food. All the while gentle live music emanated from one corner of the Hall adding to the ambience and making for a most enjoyable evening.
