This past weekend, Sunflower River celebrated our sixth anniversary living together as an intentional community, with our 5th annual Harvest Festival. we have hosted this large outdoor potluck every labor day since our second year.
I didn’t get an actual count this time, but lots of people came:
and had a good time:
and bobbed for apples:
and enjoyed the ever-popular pie contest:
which our friends Sandy and Debbie judged again this year.
Harriet presents a winning pie to the audience:
for the second year in a row, our friends from Wildlife Rescue New Mexico came down and did an educational presentation with rescued raptors.

Brian Rassmussen with a red-tailed hawk
we played some music
and some acro-yoga
and some of us had a dirt fight
what do you mean, “not in the eyes”? why not?
a lot of us got to spend time with good friends
and admire Alan’s new haircut
and swing in the hammock
and enjoy the land.
