Kids are back in school, daily routines and schedules are being finalized, apples are being picked, and Halloween is around the corner. The weather in Maine is crisp in the morning and warm in the afternoon. The debate of when to turn the heat on or light the first fire of the season has already begun. The leaves are turning yellow and lightly scattering in the yard. T shirts and shorts are being stored away to make room for sweaters and boots. Looking out our office window the squirrels are busy with endless gathering, letting us know winter is coming. This is one of our favorite times of the year at eco-kids.
This weekend we do our annual visit to the Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine. A weekend full of talking with like minded people who still have their hands in the dirt. Farmers, artists, bakers, craftsmen and craftswomen, all coming together to bring their worldly knowledge to one small village.
This is the one place where I feel comfortable letting my 8 year old son off on his own. He is most likely eating apples, listening to bluegrass or sliding down the grassy hill riding cardboard sleds with other vendors and fair goers kids.
If you are in need of breathing out and remembering what life is all about then head North!
If you're able to come to Unity, Maine and be a part of the Common Ground Fair, come stop by and say hello to us at our booth in the Maine Market Place.
Enjoy the Fall, eat local food and live well!!!
