Open Heart Farming: Twilight Meetings, launched in June at the Halifax Central Library. A wonderful field of poets, an audience of about 50, and a good, old-fashioned conclusion: Mingling with food and new and old friends. Thanks to all the poets – 9 of the 18 poets were there, including Adam Bateman, the star of his mom’s poem ‘Adam’s Peas and Carrots.’ Adam read his haiku ‘The Red Barn.’ Also reading was Ginny Wang, a Chinese high school student here in Halifax for a semester.
