Festival of Ceres

Ceres, called Demeter in Greece, was the goddess of the field and harvest. In contrast with Artemis who was goddess of the wild places, Demeter was a deity of cultivated land, and of the food it produced.

Originally this was a time for making bread with what remained of last year's grain, and for making delicate pastries and honey cakes. Recipes like Amish friendship bread and sourdough starters can be spread around during this time, and it is a great time for creating community cookbooks. Spend time today alone and in group ritual talking about food: ways to use it for health and healing, for community growth, and for spiritual nourishment.
