Be The Media! Workshop with Amy Franceschini: Futurefarmers Artist Demonstration Garden
October 17, 2014 @ 8:00 am – 8:00 pm EDT
Sow an ancient grains garden plot with agrarian-activist scarecrows, create a community seed exchange, and make media messages to cultivate consciousness! Let’s sow seeds. It is a magical experience. The land will need to be slightly tilled, turned. We will invite along people who are growing ancient grains to share first-hand their knowledge. Local grain experts, Howard Stoner, farmer/researcher, and Amy Halloran, writer and grain grower, will also contribute with the grain planting, grain husking, grain milling and pancake making. Also contributing will be farmer and permaculture expert, Rebekah Rice, of Nine Mile Farm. The workshop will be a brainstorming session on mapping the local network of actors who contribute to a regional food system. We will also start the beginnings of a seed library. In collaboration with iEAR Presents! and the Department of the Arts at RPI.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
