  • Wayne Weisman and Dan Halsey at Kinstone
    S3439 Cole Bluff Lane, Fountain City WI 54629
    July 30, 2014, 9:00 am

    In these intensive five days you will learn to identify trees and plants and come to an understanding of their significance in the landscape and delineate how to use plants for food, medicine and utility. We will observe trees and plants in their natural environment, and through observation, find methods to employ them as windbreaks, shelterbelts, habitat for animals, and companions for other plants that contribute to health and increased yields. Plant guilds, food forests, basic biology, basic botany, effects of weather on vegetation, interactions with animals, and the processes of various habitats and ecosystems (including farm ecosystems) will be discussed and examined. We will cover plant propagation, grafting, seed saving and more. The planting of prairies and native plants will be reviewed in detail as we review and observe the Kinstone Prairie planted in November 2013. We will explore prairie, woodland, savanna, pasture, gardens, farm fields, and other ecosystems found at or near Kinstone. Children ages 13-17 may register with a registered adult.

  • Gordon Edgar at American Cheese Society Conference
    American Cheese Society , Sacramento CA
    August 1, 2014, 2:15 pm

    CHEESE FACTS, CHEESE FEELINGS As the last people in line before it reaches the customers, retailers have the power to help foster or hamper the growth of American-made cheese. Do their value judgments get in the way? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? The moderator and panelists of this session will look at a number of controversial or misunderstood cheese practices and discuss whether those concepts should be used to sell a cheese, shelve a cheese, or simply be better explained. “Terroir,” frozen curd, “local,” wheel size, raw vs. pasteurized milk, certifications, “cave”-aged,” how big is BIG, and whether artisanal is a dirty word are some of the buzz words and practices that will be interrogated in this lively discussion.
