What's Stirring, April 1, 2014
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!]
Saturday, April 5, from 11 AM - 1:30 PM, enjoy the Bluegrass Edible Book Festival in at the Jessamine County Public Library in Nicholasville.
That will be after you bask in the wonders of the April 5 Spring Kickoff at the Lexington Farmers Market downtown at Cheapside Pavilion (7 AM - 2 PM) on Saturday, and Sunday, April 6 on Southland Drive (10 AM - 2 PM.)
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.)
