By demonstrating such early technologies, in this case hand tool harvesting and wooden sled transport, Museum Village hopes to demonstrate for young minds and recall to older ones how rural America lived off the land. Storytelling will be integral to the day as will the opportunity to share information about other winter traditions on the farm like cold cellars, root vegetables, jam and jelly making, canning and seed catalog perusing. Participants will gather in the heated pavilion on the grounds. This event is hosted by Museum Village and Arrow Park, with representation from the Orange County Council of Arts, local artists and farmers. $5. There will be food, hot drink, children’s nature activities and entertainment. Call 781-3729.
