Greetings from Dagonell the Juggler, the Known World Symposiums Advertising Deputy, working under the Society MoAS! Good gentles we have not one, but two Known World Symposiums coming up on Labor Day Weekend!
And here is the second!
Known World Agriculture & Forestry Symposium
Aug 30-Sept 2, 2019
Elchenburg Castle Farm
2239 Center Road, Boonville, NC 27011
This is the penultimate opportunity to gather the best teachers and exhibits dealing with period Agriculture, Land Use Practices, and Livestock Practices. This will cover everything from crop farming to kitchen gardens, agri-business, forestry, animal husbandry.
If it involved turning the land to production or domestication, management, and use of animals in human activities in anyway, then it will probably fall under the umbrella of this symposium. This is a celebration of all things to do with period Agriculture, Forestry, Land Management, and Food Production and the use of the harvest and get of those occupations. Classes, demonstrations, discussions, songs, and stories dealing with these activities, skills, and products will fill the weekend.
This is an SCA event focused on all aspects of pre-1600 agriculture, forestry practices, land and livestock management, and the use of produce and get from these industries. Attendance is open to SCA participants, both paid members and non-paid friends. All attendees are asked to make an attempt to dress in the style of pre-1600 European cultures or any ethnicity that was known to them.
A list of classes offered, feast menu and registration information may be found on their website at: http://kwagforest.atlantia.sca.org/
