Pride is alive in Ogden, Utah. Just up the road an hour away is Ogden, a smallish size city, about 80,000 people as of 2015. This year was their first annual pride festival. Held at the Ogden City amphitheater on Saturday, August 1, 2015 from 1-6pm, around 40 vendors, food trucks, and hundreds of people came to celebrate pride in their hometown and listen to some good music. The festival started at 1pm due to competition and shared space with the farmers market that morning. SLPS attended in support of the community, offering $10 tarot and palm readings. With a successful day, SLPS celebrated with rib eye steak at the Cottonwood Country Club.

The society garden has grown remarkable well! The land has been bountiful and fertile. August is expected to bring bountiful harvests, just in time for Lughnasadh, the firs great harvest time of the year.

July has provided much sun and heat for considerable growth. Here is an update as to the state of the garden. Many fruits and vegetables are near ripping and will be ready for pickin in the dogs days of August. Gaia has blessed us this year to grow organically from our own hands and to promote the real Earth working. Getting back to our ancestors of agriculture, the simple joys of growing and feeling the soil in your hands as you care for these creatures. This is the real meaning of Paganism. These shots are from July 2015.
