If you're lucky enough to have good channery silt loam gardens and fields,
have a fossil hunt. Young people can keep any fossils they find, but every
rock they examine has to be transported to the rock pile, not just dumped
back into the garden. They can also select rocks for rock painting.
Laying compost and mulch onto raised beds in preparation for winter? Make
it into a relay race with teams and ribbons as prizes.
If allowing visitors to interact with animals make sure beforehand that your
insurance coverage covers you. I took a "petting zoo" rider, which cost
only an additional $30 per year.
Acorn squash roasts just like the potatoes described in another post. A big
pot of bean soup over an outside fire and a late-season salad will
demonstrate a yummy and complete vegetarian meal. Check with health
department regulations before serving any food, though.
