happiness is : giant cabbages & mini-gardeners

This September I was honoured to be one of two judges for the Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House’s fourth annual Harvest Festival vegetable contest at Clinton Park in East Vancouver.

Frog Hollow is a volunteer driven organization that provides family and community services to people in my neighbourhood in East Van.

The day was full of watermellon-covered smiling faces, gorgeous veggies and the joyful sounds of the infamous Carnival Band. The children enjoyed a dance and impromptu parade around the park while playing tambourines and drums.

This young man was so proud! He was just beaming. Warmed my heart to see a boy so happy about veggies!!

Here I am with one of our tiniest prize winners! Who doesn’t love The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
