Taking the holiday party outside: Celebrate the Solstice with Grow It Green Morristown, Dec. 21

It’s just like any other holiday office party–except the office is a garden, and the holiday is the winter solstice.

Grow It Green Morristown will hold its third annual Winter Solstice Celebration on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, in the Community Garden on Early Street.

It starts at 7 pm and the public is invited. The idea is to mark the longest night of the year by celebrating the return of the sun–days get longer going forward.

There will be a bonfire, where you can toss your regrets (scribbled on scrap paper) and begin anew. Folklore will be shared about solstices of old. We can’t promise any equinox carols, but music will be provided, along with cider and snacks. Admission is free.

You also can learn about plans to expand the garden–about $2 million in grants have been procured–and a Food for Thought film series that starts next month and runs through April.

Co-sponsored by the Foodshed Alliance of Blairstown, the series begins with the documentary Ingredients, on Jan. 3 at the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation offices at 14 Maple Ave. in Morristown. Admission is $5 and reservations are required.
