Goddess of the Harvest Picture

Demeter is Goddess of the harvest and is most notably linked to the growing, preserving and harvesting of grain.

As the grain Goddess she also became the patron Goddess of Millers and bakers.

She not only represented the fertility of the land but as a Mother Goddess she was worshipped by woman hoping to have a child.

Her struggle to save her daughter, Persephone from the underworld led to the creation of the seasons.

This was because when Persephone was allowed to join her mother, this Deities influence encouraged the crops grow and Spring arrived. When her daughter returned to Hades Demeter fell into a deep depression, the plants stopped growing and Winter returned.
