The Living Ethics School will hold their annual summer solstice celebration: Harvesting the Organic Garden, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., June 20, with a feast of organic, locally grown food. Participants may bring a picnic, drinks, folding chairs and a blankets to relax under the trees on the restored prairie.
Amidst harvesting, cooking and feasting, families can listen to music and picnic under the trees, visit and play games such as ring toss, bean bag throw and volleyball, and enjoy arts and crafts and face painting. The solstice celebration offers children an opportunity to participate in the harvest of potatoes, squash, beans, corn, onions tomatoes and salad greens. In March, the children planted the seeds in the greenhouse and in April, they planted the seedlings in the garden.
The solstice provides an occasion to share the fruits of the harvest and cook together.
For 30 years, the Living Ethics School has operated to provide a center for children learning joyfully; embraced by community; immersed in nature and dynamically engaged.
Admission is free. Location: 340 Country Club Rd., Fairview, Texas. For more information, call 214-544-8338 or visit CenterForLivingEthics.org.
