Fall Eco-Fest Celebrates Green Family Fun

Monday, October 11 is the date for Clay Hill Farm’s second annual Fall Eco-Fest to celebrate the green shades of living with a community family fun day!
From 11am-3pm on Columbus Day Observed, Clay Hill Farm in York, Maine, will celebrate the season with live music, local food, artists, crafters, green businesses, kids activities, farmers and like-minded folk. Admission is free to this rain or shine event.
Under the beautiful Sperry Tent, and all about the 11-acre wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary at Clay Hill Farm, the Fall Eco-Fest celebrates real people making a difference in the community with educational outreach. Kids can enjoy fairy-house building and a scavenger hunt to boost backyard ecological awareness, with yoga on the lawn and pumpkin painting to excite mind/body creativity and expression. Parents can learn about community resources to encourage and empower eco-friendly life-styles in all shades of green. Artists, crafters and farmers punctuate the day with exciting local products for families to enjoy, while earth-friendly businesses help to outreach and educate about alternative resources available in our community. And, photographer Shane Corcoran will be at Clay Hill Farm’s Fall Eco-Fest to take the beautiful outdoor portraits every family wants.
