The Growing Center’s signature fall children’s event, The Gathering of the Fairies, is a garden celebration for young children. Activities include building a fairy house out of all-natural materials, creating one’s own fairy wand, hearing fairy stories, face painting, raffle, and fairy postcards. Donations are strongly encouraged to support the Growing Center and future events. A limited supply of fairy garden building materials will be available for making Fairy Houses.

NEW IN 2022: Music duo Receita de Samba presents a Portuguese/English bilingual performance of the fairy tale “Why the Sea Moans." This Brazilian Cinderella story set on the northeast coast of Brazil tells the story of a young girl and her unlikely friendship with the sea. Local dancers will perform as part of the fairy tale from 3:00 to 4:00 pm on the lawn. 

We still need volunteers to make this event happen! Older children and parents encouraged to sign up! Email Betsy Larkin to volunteer.
