Do you plant a big garden every year? Do you can or preserve food from that garden—or from foraging or swaps with others in the community—that continues to feed you through to the next season? Do you get bulk crops from a CSA or the Farmer’s Market or other source to preserve? Would you be willing to talk with us about it? As part of our 2021 collaboration with community farm littleGrasse Foodworks, we’re looking to learn about how the food we grow helps feed our food traditions. From small kitchen gardens to homestead plots and everything in between—we’d love to hear your stories! Drop us a line at email@example.com or 315-386-4289 if you’d be willing to tell us about your own big garden or the canning and preserving you do.
Do you or does someone you know have a collection related to folk art and/or traditional life in the North Country? We’d like to hear about it! In 2021, we’ll showcase collections from around our region in a revival of our popular Personal Collections Series. Contact TAUNY Executive Director Jill Breit, firstname.lastname@example.org, 315-386-4289.
