Hamilton College Dig In

Dig In! Breaking Ground, Breaking Bread @ Hamilton College


September 25, 2 PM Science Center Hamilton Campus, Room G042


Visit Hamilton College’s 1812 Garden, which is a reconstruction of an early-19th c. kitchen garden and functions as the "laboratory" project of College Seminar 235 "Food for Thought: The Science, Culture, and Politics of Food.".


Presentation on the planning of The 1812 Garden; seed preservation and heirloom recovery; and the Slow Food initiatives, The Ark of Taste and RAFT (Renewing America’s Food Traditions).


The presentation will take place in the Science Building, followed by a visit to The 1812 Garden, where, weather permitting, we will harvest heirloom varieties of potatoes and corn.  Participants will be presented with seed that we offer through Seed Savers Exchange for the 2011 growing season.


Hosted by Professors David Gapp and Franklin Sciacca, Project managers of The 1812 Garden. (Frank Sciacca is also co-leader of Slow Food Mohawk Valley Chapter.)
