"I just wanted to let you know how much we LOVED LEAF!!! We read about LEAF on your website and decided we had to be there, even though we lived in Chicago!! It was well worth the trip. The music was uniformly great-we love the eclectic nature of the selected performers. The setting is beautiful, and there were many interesting vendors---of, and the food was terrific. The best thing was the atmosphere- it was a blend of present hippies, ex-hippies, and NPR people. The point is everyone fit into LEA, a mellow, happy, mutually respectful ambience. All in all, LEAF was one of the highlights of our lives, and that includes 56 years. We¹ll be back."- Chicago, IL
