Join Vermont’s own Les Hook and Nova Kim for a demonstration on the gathering of wild foods, as well as a discussion on the ethics of their collection. ValleyFest: A Celebration of All Things Local hosts these two internationally recognized experts for a free workshop on the Bandstand on the South Royalton Green on Thursday, June 9 starting a 3 p.m.
A highlight of past ValleyFests, they bring over 80 years combined experience hunting the woods and fields of Vermont for wild foods and medicines. Much of their lives have been spent teaching and advocating for the woods and all the other beings. They supply six high-end Vermont restaurants, a CSA for wild foods, and meet much of their own food and health needs with the fruits of their gathering.
They will be bringing many sample for tasting and will answer participant’s questions. This workshop is part of the sixth annual ValleyFest that fills the South Royalton Green from 3-9 p.m. on June 9, sponsored in 2016 by BALE (Building A Local Economy), Royalton Memorial Library, Royalton Recreation Commission, Royalton Farmers Market, Royalton Community Radio and Seven Stars Arts Center. All festival events are free and will go on rain or shine. For more information, contact Chris Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
