Come enjoy the Children’s Tent for a welcoming, child-friendly environment where families can experience arts and music from different cultures through performances, workshops and hands-on activities. This year we are marking International Year of Pulses.  Pulses are legumes such as lentils and chick peas and are critical to the health and sustainability of the planet – not only for their nutritional value, but for their value in improving soil health as a rotation crop.
