Every year the Santa Fe Children’s Museum hosts a Fall Festival and Ice Cream Social. Both events have long been local family favorites and this year SFCM is combining the two from noon to 5 p.m. on Sept. 15.
The Fall Festival celebrates local abundance and three new exhibits in the outdoor learning landscape, Earthworks Gardens. The new exhibits include an Horno, a traditional adobe outdoor oven, which was built this summer by New Mexico Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) members and sponsored by Cornerstones Community Partnership and First National Bank.
“The YCC members have worked very hard all summer and have done a great job tending the gardens, constructing exhibits and facilitating programs,” SFCM Programs Director Rachael Kissling-Gilman said. “We are very proud of all that they have accomplished in just a few months.”
Visitors will be able to sample foods that were harvested from the gardens and cooked in the Horno. In addition, several YCC members will offer hands-on programs such as papermaking and recycled art projects. Local farmers and artisans will be on hand educating visitors on a variety of subjects such as yarn spinning, candle making, goat milking, beekeeping and more.
