Garden Celebrates Fall

An array of happy pumpkins greeted garden guests as 6BC celebrated Autumn Fest on Sun Oct 21.

Members, families and friends packed the garden on a gorgeous afternoon to share food and cider, explore the newly renovated shed and library (right) and enjoy performances by dancer Sabine Heubusch, musicians Tom Shaner and Cypress and friends, and poet Maggie Dubris, who read as part of the Vanishing Birds Project, a collaboration with artist Linda Byrne that was on display during the fest.

Kids got an early start on Halloween, testing out their pumpkin carving and face painting skills and producing some
wonderfully scary (and really cute) results. It was a fitting end to 6BC's 26th year as a community garden that serves the East Village by providing a place to enjoy plants-- and each other.
