Spring Has Officially Arrived in Garden Valley

Garden Valley Ritual Tells All

It snowed yesterday in Garden Valley and again this morning.  Never the less, I have official confirmation that spring has arrived.

In your neighborhood, you might depend on the calendar, the weatherman or even the Farmer’s Almanac.

In Garden Valley we have our own way of confirming the changes of the season.

To start with, the vegetation starts to come alive.  Trees start to bud out.  The pastures turn green and lush.  The deer and elk come down to the valley floor to nibble on the fresh sprouts.  Indeed, the elk are abundant right now.

For over 20 years, I have been able to count on a particular Garden Valley ritual to mark the change of seasons.  This morning marked the definitive proof that spring has arrived.  Yes, I have been watching for the signs for weeks.  I am happy to announce that Kenny moved his calves to the east pasture today. 

Spring is officially here!!!

Halloween – Garden Valley Style


Trunk or Treat

Saturday October 31st, 2009

6:00 – 8:00 PM

Garden Valley is a rural, mountainous community where there are few neighborhood that kids can Trick or Treat door to door.  Mom and Dad would have to drive their little goblins around the valley.  Local kids miss the interaction of Halloween celebrations in more urban neighborhoods.

Thus, the advent of Trunk or Treat, an easier, safer and more fun way for one and all to enjoy the Halloween festivities.   Adults challenge each other to come up with the scariest transformation of cars and trucks, turning downtown Crouch into a veritable “spook” parking lot.  Set up begins in the afternoon.  Festivities begin at 6:00 PM.  Bring lots of candy.  If you are really brave, you can sign up to be judge of the best car or truck costume.

Prizes will be donated by the Crouch Merc.

The Softer Side Of Garden Valley

6th Annual Fiber Fabric Faire

Come to the Community Hall, in Crouch, on Saturday October 3th from 10:00 – 4:00. It’s the annual Fiber and Fabric Faire. Each year the Garden Valley Quilters sponsor this fun event.   Here you’ll find, not only some great quilters, but knitters, weavers, spinners and fiber artists of all kinds.

Whether you want to learn about a fiber art, find a warm and fuzzy gift for someone special, watch a craft demonstration, or take a chance to win a hand made quilt,  this is an event for you.

I look forward to the Fiber and Fabric Faire each year.  The handmade items are truly works of art.  The textures, colors and patterns are beautiful and unique.  Last year I met several women who raise alpaca, spin the wool and knit the garments.   It was great to learn about this homespun, traditional craft.

Aside from treating myself, visiting with neighbors and friends and finding some great gifts,  I had a wonderful time.

Don’t forget that, by attending the Faire, you are also contributing to the community.  Part of the raffle proceeds go the the Crouch Ambulance fund.Garden Valley Idaho fiber Faire
