Demeter - Goddess of Earth

Demeter was the goddess of the harvest, earth and fertility. She presided over all crops especially grains. (For some reason, she was not fond of beans, regarding them as impure.)

Like her sister Hestia, she never married, but had several love affairs. With her first love, Zeus, she had two children: a daughter, Kore (later called Persephone )
