What's Stirring, April 2, 2014: April 1 Corrected and Expanded
It wasn't April Foolin' that made us do it. It was inattentiveness. We published the wrong date for the upcoming WILDFest yesterday. The right date is April 19, 2014. Thank you, JB, for the catch. We've also added to this Stirring.
Ticket prices go up after today, April 1, for the April 19 WildFest in Somerset, Kentucky (from $40 to $50.). Kentucky's first festival dedicated to wild and fermented foods comes from the indefatigable Jamie Aramini of Sustainable Kentucky and Cedar Creek Farm. Keynote speaker is Mr. Fermentation himself, Sandor Katz. Schedule here. [Date corrected from first posting. April 19!]

> While you rest between all the outings, plan your summer canning and food preservation, and get gardening information from Margit's Garden, a Maryland site loaded with information, some of which comes with a fee ($29.75 for a year.) Yes, we can all google information about gardening and food preservation. This site collects a wealth of information in one place, though, and the information appears carefully curated and thoughtfully presented for ease of use.
