The Fall Festival of 2023 was an experiment that we learned a lot from. We did not have the field for parking as we did for the Spring Garden Fair, so we held back on advertising, resulting in lower attendance then we would have liked. A good time was had by all who attended though, with an added treat being the spectacular eclipse visible in the parking lot in the morning.
The Native Plant Nursery did their usual great job of selling their plants, earning the majority of the income for the day. Greenhouse #2 was full of Christmas items, beautiful glass garden art (made by Master Gardeners) and Christmas cacti. Wonderful cookies and beverages were free to the delight of all who attended.
There were several vendors who participated, including Sanctuary One with two adorable goats. The leftover Christmas items were donated to Sanctuary One for their future fundraising events.
