Family fun at Seed Saver's Harvest Festival on October 2


Fri, Sep 17th, 2010
Posted in Arts & Culture

Join Seed Savers Exchange for their annual Harvest Festival at Heritage Farm on Saturday, October 2, 2010, from noon to 4 pm. Attend garlic planting and seed saving workshops, tour the seed processing facilities, listen to bluegrass music, go on hayrides through the valley or guided hikes to the historic orchard, sample and vote for your favorite soup.

For a minimal fee, visitors can sample a small bowl of each of six different soups, made with a secret Iron Chef-like ingredient. Prepared by different area restaurant chefs, a portion of the proceeds will go to support local food banks. Vote for your favorite soup, with the winning restaurant carrying home the Harvest Festival traveling trophy and the bragging rights that accompany it.

"This is always a fun family event, said Seed Savers Exchange co-founder Diane Ott Whealy. "The fall colors at Heritage Farm are glorious this time of the year and we have a variety of activities planned to make everyone's visit an enjoyable one."

Tours, workshops, hayrides and guided hikes begin at noon. Other events taking place at Harvest Festival include cider press demonstrations, giant pumpkin carving by Lynn Staley, and apple sampling and purchase. Music is by the Western Home String Band.
