Calling all Acorn aficionados, enthusiasts and oak nut neophytes: time to celebrate the fall of them!
Join us at D Acres to share:
- acorn lore
- and FUN
Sunday’s activities will include
- acorn gathering and processing
- “how to” walks and demonstrations.
- Sampling acorn foods, sharing recipes
- and contests for the biggest acorn and acorn art.
The 2017 Acorn Festival will open at 2PM with an acorn walk through beautiful paths of D Acres (dress for the weather). We will walk and discuss New England Oak Ecology and other forest news. We will identify how to tell a “good” (for eating) acorn from a “bad” one, and techniques for gathering efficiently, with a light footprint.
By 3:00PM we will move inside to demonstrate processing and storage methods, using equipment found in most households. The walk, workshops, and contests are FREE and kid friendly.
