Another fun Harvest Fest
Written by: Lauren Davis, Program Associate in the Office of Sustainability
Every fall, The Ursinus Office of Sustainability gathers as a community on the Campus Farm to thank our farm fellows’ dedication and hard work from the previous summer with the Harvest Fest. On Saturday, October 21st, around 50 people came together in celebration of the festival! Thanks to our farm fellows, Elwood Harney and Teague McCormack, our community was able to share and honor the products of their hard work over the summer. Harvest Fest is something that everyone can look forward to each year because it allows us to look back on how we care for the environment on campus. This event is a great way for our farm fellows to relish the rewards that their summer-long devotion to care has brought to the Campus Farm. We celebrated this with pumpkin carving, plant pot painting, delicious snacks, and cool tunes. The Campus Farm allows us as students and staff to practice one of Ursinus’s core questions: “How should we live together?”. Harvest Fest is a symbolic way to conclude the crop season on the farm, giving thanks to anyone that lent a helping hand.
