Elon Strawberry Festival 2014

The last few weeks of school are full of signs of summer! And what is a better symbol of summer than strawberries? Professor Strickland’s garden studio class did a fantastic job hosting this year’s Strawberry Festival in the Elon Community Garden last Friday.

One of the best events at Elon!

The class sold lots of herbs and plants they’ve been growing this semester.

There was also lots and lots and lots of yummy strawberry treats. From cakes, to ice cream, to smoothies, there were so many delicious foods to choose from!

How to choose?!

The Festival is a celebration of strawberries and the happiness of summer. Visitors celebrated with live music, face painting and creative backdrops to take photos with friends.
