harvest festival

Megan Betz

The Bloomington Community Orchard had their second annual Harvest Festival on July 26. I was on hand to help with a haiku contest and to do some participant observation while learning about beekeeping and fruit harvesting. I took some photos that I thought I'd share.

A homemade blueberry-peach pie was on hand for the winner of the haiku contest.
