The Giant Turnip

Back to Seasonal Events The Giant Turnip

Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. 

Ole and Ingrid Hass of Beech Tree Puppets present "The Giant Turnip".  A whimsical and humorous telling of this Ukrainian folk tale celebrates community and caring for the earth. An old man and his wife who, after lovingly preparing and tending their garden, grow a vegetable so large they can’t pull it up by themselves. The story is told with hand-crafted rod-puppets, and much singing.  Shadow puppets reveal what happens under the ground, including a helpful and jolly root gnome.

Then we will enjoy the magic of this evening--the weaving of a performance in the barn, the gardens in fall, a fire circle and a pot-luck meal for farm circle members. The evening ends with people gathering around the fire singing and telling stories.
