PHOTOS: Rock Creek's Harvest Festival attracts more than 1,000 people

Photos and Story by

The Harvest Festival, which featured hayrides, attracted more than 1,000 people on Saturday, Oct. 25. There was a significant focus this year on sustainability, featuring cornstarch products used at the sampling tables (pumpkin recipes); no printed agendas or maps were used as information was disseminated via several large signs; reusable products were utilized throughout the event minimizing use of disposables and therefore minimizing the impact on the waste stream; and tours were given throughout the day highlighting the kitchen waste-to-worm bin-garden loop.

Greywind the Llama also participated.
