AIM's Colonial Art Exhibit

Preserving Our Roots

Take a step back in time as you experience a student-created root cellar, view student art, hand-dipped candles, and corn husk dolls.

In the fall AIM students and Farm Table Foundation worked together on a project which explored the food, art, and skills of colonial America. Students had hands-on experiences learning about four methods of food preservation from Farm Table’s preservationist, Sue Nielsen. In art class, students explored the art and crafts of colonial times; they created corn husk dolls and learned about candle dipping. Students also researched the skills and pastimes of early Americans.

We invite you to peruse AIM students’ creations in Farm Table’s art gallery now until mid April.

 

Classes, Events & Exhibits

Farm Table Foundation seeks to engage our community in a wide-ranging discussion about how best to prepare and utilize locally produced foods. To that end we have a suite of cooking and preserving classes that focus on traditional approaches to getting the most out of food. These classes, workshops and events allow community members and visitors alike to expand their understanding of seasonality, farming issues and preservation techniques -- everything from pickling, to proper seed care, to wild herb identification, to seasonal food pairings. Farming and food preparation/preservation are at the very core of what makes human cultures unique. Farm Table Foundation is thrilled to be part of this ancient adventure that frequently takes on new dimensions as it comes in contact with alert and creative participants. We hope to see you soon in Amery so you can be a part of making local food both timeless and contemporary.

Farm Table Foundation is building a place-based food system in western Wisconsin, one that holds these values dear: how we farm matters, connecting with local producers creates joy and meaning, eating fresh food brings nutrition and health, learning keeps us engaged, and all of this fosters community, ecology and a resilient local economy.

We can turn the imperative of food into an exploration of place, a journey to the heart of each season, a discovery of self — creating passion for what the land and community offers.

Help grow this place and these values. Donate your time or money and make our efforts stronger. We need your support and enthusiasm.
