Community Groups Create Fairy Garden at Folklife Center

Monday, July 15, 2013

The Marion County Master Gardeners and the Mountaineer Miniatures Club joined forces this summer to create a Fairy Garden, which is fitting because tales about the wee folk—fairies, elves, brownies and leprechauns—are part of the rich cultural heritage of Appalachia and the European immigrants who settled here in West Virginia.
