Just before we all head on out for winter break, check out the work of the 45 students in Prof. John Elder’s Farm Stories class. They’ve spent the semester gathering stories from 11 farms in the region. An opening reception will be held December 7th, 4-6PM at the Vermont Folklife Center (in town next to Otter Creek Bakery). The exhibit runs through December 31st. Below is a preview of audio and photos from the exhibit:
