A big thank you to the Vancouver Farmers Market. A great time was had by all. Our Free Range Poets Ngwatilo Mawiyoo (l) and Juliane Okot Bitek (r) brought poetry into the market reading poems from poets and patrons about everything from apples to mangoes!!
We also received contributions on our poetry scroll here's a sample:
corn tassles adrift in your curly hair
twisted chocolate peppers
summer days blown like mustard seeds - by Sam
Autumn wind blows,
chestnuts in my pocket - by Katie
Fall is here,
the leaves smile - by Jessica
