The composting teach in was canceled as was the seed swap but the rest of the event went on without a hitch. The weather cooperated by giving a warm, sunny day. The day was long but well worth it. Aside from the canceled teach in, the schedule was stuck to though the event did go over later than expected.
Pictures of the event are available on FB. I tried to upload them here but WordPress is being bitchy and won’t let me put any pictures in this post.
