Matt and I had the honor of attending a garden + music festival at Buford Middle School this evening and slicing bread as one of the food donors of the event.
Our neighbor (and friend!) Kate along with the City Schoolyard Garden Director, Linda, put together the whole festival for the fun of celebrating dirt and music together.
We brought Honey + Dakota
To go along with the lovely spread of food donated by other restaurants
There were so many vegetables available!!
All to be enjoyed in the presence of the garden while listening to some good music!
The festival was also celebrating that the superintendent just OKed a school garden for all of Cville’s elementary schools with some private funding! [Correct me if I’m wrong…] Buford’s garden is two-years strong and was recently visited by the famous Alice Waters!
I enjoyed a plate of salad, kale salad, wheatberry salad and a drumstick of fried chicken.
While we listened to local artists perform on the main stage from bales of hay
The music line-up included local artists, students and the famous Dar Williams!
Blue Ridge Music Together students
Anne O’Brien with Liz Varon and Charlie O’Brien
Don’t Tell Darlings
Jan Smith and Jeff Vogelsang
I was sad not to have gotten a Carpe Donut, but I did cheer with glee when I saw these mini cupcakes!
The gorgeous weather faded when this happened:
And things moved inside.
Matt and I tag-teamed the slicing and the event ended with a fabulous “This Land Is Your Land” sing along!
