Join the Ramsey Center for Appalachian Studies for an evening of food and fellowship at the Madison County Agricultural Extension.
This evening is a celebration of a research project about heritage foods and farming practices in Madison County undertaken by Mars Hill University faculty and students in collaboration with MHU’s Ramsey Center for Appalachian Studies, MHU’s Center for Community Engagement, and the Appalachian Barn Alliance.
Guests will hear presentations about the research project (including from MHU student Mickey Lambert, MHU Professor Ethan Mannon, and Director of the Southern Appalachian Archives Dr. Karen Paar), look at displays and demonstrations about Western North Carolina’s agricultural heritage, and have a light meal of regional foods created by Chef Susi Gott Seguret. Roger Howell and Jerry Sutton will be on hand with some good mountain tunes.
This project was funded by a generous grant from a Council of Independent Colleges program called Humanities Research for the Public Good, which strives to connect “independent colleges with their communities through undergraduate research.”
