Swallowtail Farm’s Spring Festival Features Workshops, Live Music and Physics

By

The smell of manure, meatloaf and mulch meandered through the muggy air Saturday as Swallowtail Farm hosted its sixth annual Spring Festival.

The farm, located north of Alachua, hosted workshops throughout the day along with various live music acts, including Shaky Earl, Thin Skin and Captive Eddies.

Zipporah Sky, a 23-year-old jewelry vendor at the festival, said she loves being at Swallowtail because it’s a beautiful part of the community.

“I love being out in nature,” said Sky, who walked around the festival barefoot. “A lot of my friends are here, so it’s a win-win.”

Amber Geller, the Outreach Coordinator for Swallowtail Farm, said the Spring Fest brought in about 1,000 people. The event was meant as a fundraiser, with all proceeds going directly to the farm. Geller is unsure of how much was raised this year.

She described it as “a model of sustainability and fine land stewardship.”
