Hunting, Gathering and Fungus Farming
Whallonsburg Grange Hall is hosting a lyceum lecture series called “Land and Labor: The Past, Present and Future of Farming in America.” Lectures will be on Tuesday nights at 7:30 pm.
This is the final lecture of this 8-week Whallonsburg Grange lyceum series. Attend to learn how Adirondack settlers fed their families in the 19th century. From the title of the lecture I imagine it included a lot of hunting and gathering and growing mushrooms, or perhaps just knowing where to find them in the forest?
Date/Time: Tuesday, March 26, 2013. At 7:30 pm. [Rescheduled for preceding date]
Topic: Hunting, Gathering and Fungus Farming: Feeding the Adirondack Farm Family in the 19th Century
Speaker: Hallie Bond, former curator at the Adirondack Museum for 25 years
Price: $5 per lecture. Students free.
What are the Whallonsburg Grange Lyceums?
“Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate. The current Lyceum Series at the Grange continues this tradition with lectures and programs of interest to the community.” (Whallonsburg Grange Hall)
