The town of Eleusis, 15 miles Northwest of Athens, is at the heart of the wheat
and barley gowing region of Greece.
It is here that a festival was performed in honour of Demeter ( Persephone’s mother ).It is told that Demeter, in her searching for Persephone, came upon
the city of Eleusis and took shelter there.
I imagine that this is what the first spring would have looked and felt like in
Eleusis once Demeter had found her beautiful daughter and returned
to her duties as Goddess of the harvest.
