Video: Another Holiday "Gifts Of Autumn - 2012"
Tradition is alive
Every autumn at the end of October for the last six years in the House of Culture "Suzdalsky" the harvest festival of the club "Green Gift - 3" has been held.
The festival was also attended by gardeners, members of the "Smile" club, which works in the same recreation center and is headed by Galina Ivanovna Fomicheva. There were guests from other city clubs, such as the club at the House of Scientists on the Neva and the Usadebka club, as well as members of the Golden Autumn city club - well-known gardeners in our city Galina Prokopyevna Romanova, Lyubov Dmitrievna Bobrovskaya, Litvinova Alevtina Pavlovna. Famous winegrowers Vladimir Nikolaevich Silnov and Irina Nikolaevna Plekhanova, who are promoting this culture in our region, also attended our holiday. Now many listeners of the Zeleny Dar-3 club have planted grape seedlings grown by these specialists in their plots.
The holiday turned out to be beautiful, interesting in content, with a concert and a feast. The gardeners tasted the gifts of the orchards and gardens brought by the participants of the holiday, various pastries, the “Charlotte” pie with apples, as well as delicious bread with pumpkin were in special demand.
Hardworking gardeners, despite the climatically difficult past summer, tried to grow many interesting or just high-quality vegetables. The spectacle of the exhibits displayed on a long table was impressive, bright and varied (see photo). Along with traditional pumpkins, zucchini, squash, carrots, beets, onions and garlic, there were presented grapes, huge watermelon hybrids, melons grown in the open field, lagenaria, berry and vegetable physalis, impressive heads of Peking cabbage, the secrets of growing this crop are already quite mastered by the participants of our holiday.
On the exhibition table there were baskets with ruddy apples (their harvest last season was huge), bottles of homemade wine, vegetable sweets and even a bouquet of blooming roses. And there were also many winter preparations according to various original recipes. They could be tasted later.
As always, the achievements of the gardeners were evaluated by a competent jury, which was traditionally headed by Luiza Nilovna Klimtseva. The gardeners who distinguished themselves with particular successes in the gardening business were awarded with useful gifts, which were taken care of by the employees of our beloved House of Culture. However, none of the exhibitors was left without gifts, even if there was a modest jar with canned cucumbers on the table. And it was pleasant for people, and many kind words were said to the director of the House of Culture and employees.
Everyone, without exception, was attracted by another interesting event organized by the employees of the Palace of Culture: a master class on carving "Decorative carving for fruits and vegetables." The participants of the holiday surrounded the table on which, as if by magic, bouquets of flowers from vegetables were growing under the hands of carving craftsmen. Even a huge watermelon blossomed with a smile and passed from hand to hand who wanted to be photographed with it.
And never a holiday in the recreation center "Suzdalsky" is complete without dancing, because our gardeners are able not only to surprise with the results of their work, but they are very good at both having fun and dancing.
And the head of the "Smile" club G.I. Fomicheva brought an interesting poetic element to our holiday - an interlude on the theme "Smile". This smile lights up from the sun, which gives life to everything on earth.
In a word, the harvest festival was a success, and gardeners, having grown and prepared ecologically clean vegetables, berries, apples, can now meet winter without fear.
