Statue of Pomona
Pomona was the goddess of fruitful abundance in ancient Roman religion and myth. Her name comes from the Latin word pomum, "fruit," specifically orchard fruit. Pomona was the goddess of fruit trees, gardens, and orchards. She watches over and protects fruit trees and cares for their cultivation. She was not actually associated with the harvest of fruit itself, but with the flourishing of the fruit trees.


Give Away is open to anyone with a mailing address in the U.S. or Canada. Everyone gets 2 Free Entries. We will announce the winners on our website by August 15 and in the September Jam Notes.
