Harvest Picnic 2011

The impetus for Harvest Week here at Rural Revival,
The Greenbelt Harvest Picnic 2011.

A celebration of local food, local farmers, local love.

We hope you've enjoyed our celebration of local food this past week but more importantly, 
we hope it has inspired you to seek out all that is good in your own neck of the woods. 
There is much to reap, go forth and seek 
and enjoy.

Some scenes from yesterday's picnic.

 


Daniel Lanois, music producer of such names as Emmy Lou Harris, Bob Dylan, 
Peter Gabriel, Robbie Robertson, and, ahem, U2.



A stream of lanterns floating through the sky is the definition of enchanting.

Ray LaMontagne, his voice is richer and incredibly wonderful heard live and was the highlight of my evening.


~Be LOCAL friends!
